National Library of Medicine Resource Guides on Recent Public Health Incidents

Posted by on February 5th, 2016 Posted in: Emergency Preparedness, Environmental Health, Public Health, Regional Information


The National Library of Medicine (NLM) recently developed resource lists for three public health emergencies affecting both local and global communities. An incident Web page was created to gather resources on the emerging health issues arising from the Zika Virus. Two PDF documents on recent chemical incidents have been updated. Please share these resources freely. These resource lists link to a variety of sources such as: Local, state, federal and international agencies and organizations; Database searches for the health information issues around the incidents; and Social media resources for situational awareness.
