Each year, NCHS releases a report to Congress and to the President concerning the nation’s health. This report is available to the media and the public, and the 33rd edition, Health United States, 2009, can be found at www.cdc.gov/nchs/hus.htm. Each year the report features a special section, and this year’s focus is the growing use of medical technology.
