FOIA: Delicate Dance of Public Disclosure and Privacy

By Carla Garnett

NIH FOI Officer Susan Cornell

Try talking about the Freedom of Information Act with your coworker and you can probably expect stifled yawns and glazed-over eyes.

NIDA at 25: Looking Back and Ahead

By David Anderson

The National Institute on Drug Abuse was created by an act of Congress on May 14, 1974, in part as a response to burgeoning drug use among the nation's youth.

Today, NIDA funds more than 85 percent of the world's research on drug abuse and drug addiction.
