Health and Research Information

NIAID Information Specialists are available Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Eastern time, to answer questions about infectious and immune-mediated diseases and research topics.

If you do not have a healthcare provider or specialist, the NIH MedlinePlus Directories may help you find one. A university-affiliated teaching hospital may also assist you in finding a medical specialist. To check for teaching hospitals in your area, visit Association of American Medical Colleges (non-government Web site).
