MedlinePlus, the trusted source for free, reliable health information from the U.S. National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, has a brand new look. The completely redesigned site has a freshened look and feel, a new logo, and a new color scheme.

- Emphasizes search and makes navigation more intuitive
