Spotlight on CDC TRAIN: Celebrating 3 Years of Excellence
Three years ago the CDC Learning Connection(CDC LC) launched CDC TRAIN. Learners across public health and health care gained access to thousands of free courses related to public health. In the past year, more than 20,000 new learners joined CDC TRAIN; 91,319 are now registered. CDC TRAIN offers more than 6,300 courses, many offering free continuing education. A user star rating tool allows you to see what your peers think about courses. A dashboard feature helps you organize all your learning activities, making it easier than ever to stay on top of your professional development. CDC TRAIN also e-mails you when a new course meets your saved search criteria. Interested in what courses others are taking? The three courses with the most registrations in the past year are listed below.
Public Health Image Library (PHIL)
Much of the important information in public health messages is communicated through images rather than text. A CDC working group created PHIL as an organized, universal electronic gateway to CDC's pictures. PHIL images are available at no cost to public health and healthcare professionals, the media, laboratory scientists, educators, students, and the public. Images are used for reference, teaching, presentations, and public health messages. Content is organized by people, places, and science. Single images, image sets, and multimedia files are available. Access PHIL and use the pictures in your public health training products.
