Resource Spotlight: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Have you heard of the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)? If not, now is the time to learn about it. This is our nations health protection agency.

"[The] CDC works 24/7 to protect America from health, safety and security threats, both foreign and in the U.S. Whether diseases start at home or abroad, are chronic or acute, curable or preventable, human error or deliberate attack, CDC fights disease and supports communities and citizens to do the same."

This is my go to source for all health information. I'm personally interested in infectious disease prevention and control and this organization has so much information on this topic along with many other topics. I learned about the CDC when I was studying at BYU. This organization and its website is a trusted and reliable source used by health departments, universities, politicians, hospitals and many other health sources. While exploring their website more, I came to find an awesome section called "Parent Information". Here you can explore topics such as child specific diseases and conditions, safety in the home and community, raising healthy children, milestones and schedules and school health. This is a great resource for your entire family. Feel free to take some time and explore their website by clicking here
