How NSSP Works Across CDC
NSSP collaborates with programs across CDC, and with health departments, to improve syndromic surveillance and respond to health events like the opioid overdose epidemic, e-cigarette or vaping product use-associated lung injury, and influenza-like illness. The collaborations described, while not exhaustive, summarize ongoing efforts.
Developing a Suspected Child Abuse and Neglect Syndrome for State Health Departments
In July, the SD Subcommittee focused on health topics that affect children, including COVID infection-associated shutdowns, children being out of school, and families under increased stress. Elizabeth Swedo of CDC’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), Division of Violence Prevention (DVP), described a collaborative effort to develop the Suspected Child Abuse and Neglect Syndrome.
