CDC Science Clips: Volume 7, Issue 11, March 17, 2015
Each Tuesday, to enhance awareness of emerging scientific knowledge, selected science clips will be posted here for the public health community. The focus is applied public health research and prevention science that has the capacity to improve health now.
The report consists of these components:
- Key scientific articles in featured topic areas (this week featuring articles in conjunction with the March CDC Public Health Grand Rounds, Addressing Preparedness Challenges for Children in Public Health Emergencies)
- No CDC-authored publications in this edition
Key Scientific Articles in Featured Topic Areas
Subject matter experts decide what topic to feature, and articles are selected from the last 3 to 6 months of published literature. Key topic coincides monthly with other CDC products (e.g. Vital Signs).
