CDC has developed content syndication pages, which are technical applications that allow CDC partners to display CDC health and safety information about emergency preparedness on their own Web sites. The content is automatically updated in real-time, so that when CDC updates the information, the changes are automatically made on the partner’s Web site.
"In this blog, we share our public health passions about the evolution of public health and the continual strides that are being made to protect and save lives through education, awareness, research, and promoting healthy lifestyles. We look forward to listening to our communities for greater transparency and accountability."
— RADM Ali S. Khan
