Announcement: MMWR iPad App Now Available
A new MMWR iPad application is now available for free download in the Apple store. This application provides access to the complete array of publications in the MMWR series, which includes the MMWR Weekly, plus Recommendations and Reports, Surveillance Summaries, Supplements, and the annual Summary of Notifiable Diseases.
MMWR publications have been in existence since 1952, and today MMWR remains CDC's primary vehicle for scientific publication of timely, reliable, authoritative, accurate, objective, and useful public health information and recommendations. MMWR readership predominantly consists of physicians, nurses, public health practitioners, epidemiologists and other scientists, researchers, educators, pharmacists, and laboratorians.
This application is one of an expanding collection of applications from CDC, each one optimized for mobile devices. Now topical CDC content is available whenever, wherever. When a mobile device is connected, the content is updated automatically, ensuring that users always have the most up-to-date information. Users also can personalize their experience with features such as highlighting, annotations, and bookmarks, and they can share the content with others via social media such as Facebook and Twitter. The application is available at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/morbidity-mortality-weekly/id544772409?mt=8.
All MMWR HTML versions of articles are electronic conversions from typeset documents.
