CDC Science Clips: Volume 8, Issue 23, June 7, 2016
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.
This week, Science Clips is pleased to collaborate with CDC Vital Signs by featuring scientific articles from the June Vital Signs (www.cdc.gov/vitalsigns). The articles marked with an asterisk are general review articles which may be of particular interest to clinicians and public health professionals seeking background information in this area.
The report consists of these components:
- Key scientific articles in featured topic areas (this week featuring articles on Legionnaire’s Disease in conjunction with the June CDC Vital Signs)
- CDC-authored publications
