CDC Science Clips: Volume 8, Issue 33, August 16, 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 features articles in conjunction with the August CDC Public Health Grand Rounds, Primary Prevention and Public Health Strategies to Prevent Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS).
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).
