The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of Communication and Public Liaison and the NIH Director’s Council of Public Representatives have partnered to develop a Consumer Health Information Request for Information (RFI) in response to a Directive by President Barack Obama to all Federal agencies calling for greater transparency, public participation, and collaboration.
In conjunction with the NIH goals for public input and effective dissemination of science-based health resources and information to the public, the RFI will provide insight and better understanding of the health information needs and information-seeking behaviors of NIH health consumer audiences. The information gathered will assist the agency in developing and disseminating health, medical, and scientific information to a broader variety of audiences.
The RFI may be completed online in English or downloaded from the Web site in Spanish. For more information please visit http://nihhealthinfoRFI.nih.gov.
