Title: Science Clips: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Weekly Public Health Article Alerts
Objective: To provide a weekly snapshot of current articles written by, or of interest to, the US public health workforce.
Methods: Three sections of Science Clips are compiled and issued weekly to both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) intranet and the CDC Internet site (www.cdc.gov/phlic/sciclips/): CDC-authored publications, key articles in featured topics, and health-related articles noted in the media. Each section is compiled by a librarian from CDC’s Public Health Library and Information Center (PHLIC). CDC-authored publications are compiled from results of stored searches in several databases, as well as any article that CDC authors call to the attention of scienceclips@cdc.gov. Each week, a subject matter expert works with PHLIC staff on selection of the articles for the featured topics of that week. The articles highlighted in the media are selected from current news items in the mainstream media that discuss recent health-related publications. Finally, before Science Clips is issued the senior medical advisor from the CDC Office of the Associate Director for Science (OADS) peruses the articles from all three sections and selects the top ten for that week. The top ten are selected based on population impact and implementation potential.
Results: Science Clips was first issued on the CDC intranet in August 2009, and in June 2010, the Internet version was made available at www.cdc.gov/phlic/sciclips/. The CDC workforce benefits from seeing the publications from colleagues in the varied CDC Centers and geographic locations. Since June 2010, Science Clips has been distributed to approximately 5,500 subscribers of CDC’s Health Alert Network. Science Clips is one step in an ongoing initiative by the CDC PHLIC and OADS to offer resources to public health workers at state and local levels. To date, the most popular subject category of Science Clips is chronic diseases and conditions. Two state public health departments have already featured Science Clips on their websites, and international audiences come from Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and Europe.
Conclusions: This poster illustrates the methods used to produce Science Clips and will review the statistics, feedback, and use of Science Clips.
