Content Syndication

CDC has developed content syndication pages, which are technical applications that allow CDC partners to display CDC health and safety information about chronic diseases on their own Web sites. The content is automatically updated in real-time, so that when CDC updates the information, the changes are automatically made on the other Web site.

QR Codes

Million Hearts

Million Hearts™ is a national initiative to prevent 1 million heart attacks and strokes over five years. A QR code, or Quick Response code, is a type of matrix barcode (or two-dimensional code) that can provide access to a website, document, or other types of information. To interact with a QR code, scan the barcode with the camera on your mobile device. You will need a QR reader or "scanner application" available—often for free—through a mobile application store, like the Apple Store or the Android Market.


RSS, which stands for Really Simple Syndication, is an easy way to receive automatic updates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention right on your desktop or browser. Subscribe to RSS updates for ongoing news related to chronic diseases. News and alerts will be delivered directly to your RSS reader when you sign-up.
