DR. RODGERS: From birth through old age, nurses support you and your loved ones to make healthy choices and thrive.

Hi, I’m Dr. Griffin Rodgers, director of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases at NIH.

My colleague Dr. Shannon Zenk, director of the National Institute on Nursing Research, or NINR, explains.

DR. ZENK: Research at NINR and across NIH can help you become healthy and maintain your health at every stage of your life.

Whether it’s improving birth outcomes through better prenatal care, preventing conditions like obesity in youth, or helping older adults learn how to better manage chronic diseases, nurse scientists are leading research projects that support a lifetime of healthy living.

Across NIH, we are using the power and potential of nurses to discover creative solutions to help you, your family, and future generations chart a healthy course for life.
