NIH Announces New Spanish Language Website on Neurological DisordersDecember 20, 2007
Free, accurate information on many neurological disorders is now available on a new Spanish language website from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The website is available at www.espanol.ninds.nih.gov.
Health information featured on the new website includes publications on epilepsy, autism, as well as many other neurological disorders. The publications can be downloaded or ordered free of charge. The website also provides information on clinical studies, links to non-profit organizations that offer information and assistance on neurological disorders, and a contact form where people can submit questions on topics related to health and biomedical research.
Providing health information to the nation’s Spanish-speaking population is an important part of the NIH's outreach efforts, which support its mission to reduce the burden of neurological disease. According to the 2000 United States Census, 28.1 million people in the U.S. who are age 5 or older speak Spanish in their homes.
