NIDDK Information Products Receive 14 Plain Language Awards
National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) publications, websites, and other informational products have been honored with 14 National Institutes of Health (NIH) Plain Language Awards. The annual awards program, now in its 10th year, honors communication products that help the NIH reach all Americans with health information they can use and research results they can easily understand.
NIDDK resources—including publications, radio reports, and web-based materials—received five Bronze, five Silver, and four Gold awards. The winning publications included easy-to-read materials designed for Spanish- and Vietnamese-speaking audiences.
More than 300 nominations were submitted for this year’s awards, and the winners were announced during a ceremony May 26. Information about the NIH Plain Language Awards program and a list of winning entries is available at www.nih.gov/clearcommunication/plainlanguage.htm.
