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
