Description

The National Digestive Diseases Information Clearinghouse (NDDIC) is an information dissemination service of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK). The NIDDK is part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. NDDIC was established in 1980 to increase knowledge and understanding about digestive diseases among people with these conditions and their families, health care professionals, and the general public. To carry out this mission, NDDIC works closely with a coordinating panel of representatives from Federal agencies, voluntary organizations on the national level, and professional groups to identify and respond to informational needs about digestive diseases.

Print Resources

The NDDIC distributes publications about diabetes, digestive diseases, and kidney and urologic diseases in varying reading levels. Publications include easy-to-read booklets, fact sheets, Spanish-language materials, and a quarterly e-newsletter, “Digestive Diseases News”. Patients, health care professionals, and the general public can order publications through an online publications catalog. The NDDIC also sends publications to health fairs and community events.
