CDC.gov Features deliver actionable and timely health, safety and wellness messages. Here is a preview of the CDC.gov Health and Safety features of the week:
Balamuthia mandrillaris ameba infection ~ Balamuthia mandrillaris is a free-living ameba (a single-celled organism) found in soil and dust. Exposure to Balamuthia is likely to be common because of how widespread it is in the environment. However, very few cases of disease in humans have been found worldwide since Balamuthia was discovered.
Institute of Medicine Reports on Women’s Health ~ In the new Institute of Medicine (IOM) report, Women’s Health Research: Progress, Pitfalls, and Promise, the IOM describes substantial progress in some areas and less progress in other areas.
National Gay Men's HIV/AIDS Awareness ~ September 27 marked the third annual National Gay Men’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NGMHAAD), a national initiative to focus attention on the prevention and treatment of HIV and AIDS in the gay community in the United States.
Pertussis (Whooping Cough) - What You Need To Know ~ Pertussis (whooping cough) is very contagious and can cause serious illness―especially in infants who are too young to be fully vaccinated. Make sure your infants and young children get their recommended five shots on time. Adolescent and adult vaccination is also important, especially for families with new infants.
Raise Safe and Healthy Kids ~ Follow these tips to help kids grow into safe and healthy adults.
CDC.gov feature articles are written by subject matter experts and health communicators, then edited to emphasize strong call-to-action messages and friendly, meaningful visuals. While most features are topic- or event-driven, some capture the full scope of CDC's work on cross-cutting topics such as staying healthy and safe over the holidays, sending kids back to school, or CDC's global programs and outreach. CDC Features may be syndicated to other Web sites at no cost. Learn more about Content Syndication.
