CDC Launches Public Health Tracking Network
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced July 7 the launch of its Web-based Environmental Public Health Tracking Network.
This program, according to the CDC, is a surveillance tool for scientists, health professionals, and the public to track environmental exposures and chronic health conditions.
“The ability to examine many data sets together for the first time has already resulted in faster responses to environmental health issues. We believe the Tracking Network holds the potential to shed new light on some of our biggest environmental health questions,” said Howard Frumkin, M.D., M.P.H., DrPh., director, of CDC’s National Center for Environmental Health.
