Listen to Health Information from NIH

If you don’t have time to sit and read the latest health and research news, NIH has resources you can listen to on the go. NIH’s audio news service provides broadcast radio stations and networks—and also podcast listeners and the public—with new stories about health, medicine and NIH research.

You may have heard one program, NIH Health Matters, on your local radio station. In just 60 seconds, you can hear about an important health topic from an NIH expert.

For more in-depth information, listen to the weekly NIH Research Radio podcast, where you can hear a conversation with the same subject matter experts, including doctors, researchers and scientists. The podcast also has a news summary.

Download the audio programs at, where you can subscribe for updates. These and other audio programs from NIH are routinely updated on a regular phone line at 301-276-3384 (toll and airtime charges may apply).
