The National Hematologic Diseases Information Service (NHDIS) is a service of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK). The NIDDK is part of the National Institutes of Health of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The NHDIS provides information about hematologic diseases to people with hematologic diseases and to their families, health care professionals, and the public. The NHDIS answers inquiries, develops and distributes publications, and works closely with professional and patient organizations and Government agencies to coordinate resources about hematologic diseases.

Print Resources

The NHDIS distributes publications about hematologic diseases through the National Kidney and Urologic Diseases Information Clearinghouse (NKUDIC), provided free of copyright, in varying reading levels. Patients, health care professionals, and the general public can order publications through an online publications catalog. The NKUDIC also sends publications to health fairs and community events. All publications produced by the NHDIS and the NKUDIC are carefully reviewed by both NIDDK scientists and outside experts.
