CDC Launches Online Video Resource

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has launched CDC-TV, a new online video resource on 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 CDC's efforts to increase access to information that can help people prevent illness and injury. "Online video is one of the best tools we have to reach a large number of people and help them make informed health decisions by providing accurate health information," said Jay Bernhardt, Ph.D., director of CDC's National Center for Health Marketing. "CDC-TV marks an exciting new chapter in our continuing efforts to provide CDC's health information to the public when, where, and how they want it."

The videos are available at http://www.cdc.gov/CDCtv.
