The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has launched CDC-TV, a new online video resource available through the http://www.cdc.gov. CDC-TV videos will cover a variety of health, safety and preparedness topics. The premiere series on CDC-TV is “Health Matters.” The first segment of the series, “Break the Silence: Stop the Violence,” addresses the topic of teen dating violence. In this video, parents and teens discuss the problem of dating violence and how to prevent it.
The library of available videos through CDC-TV will expand to include single-topic presentations as well as series for children, parents and public health professionals. Most are short and all include captioning for the hearing-impaired. The videos are part of the CDC′s efforts to increase access to information that can help people prevent illness and injury.
