For May 1, 2009: Did you know that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention—the CDC—was founded in 1946 to help control malaria? Since that time it has expanded its focus to prevent and control infectious and chronic diseases, injuries, workplace hazards, disabilities, and environmental health threats.
The CDC site is a gateway to publications, statistics, and news. Featured on the page are Pandemic Flu resources, the Get Smart: Know When Antibiotics Work Campaign, and breaking news stories. Stay informed by subscribing to free email updates tailored to your specific interests. This is a great starting point for students studying diseases and current health issues.
