MCN Five on Friday


As we roll into the weekend, we’d like to offer up some of the interesting news pieces that arrived in our inboxes this week. What did you see this week? Let us know on Facebook and Twitter.


  1. Candace, Specialist in Clinical Systems and Women’s Health, forwarded on two Zika-related webinars that took place on April 11th, the American Academy of Pediatrics’ Zika Virus, the Evolving Story: What You Need to Know and the CDC’s Zika Virus: Protecting Pregnant Women and Babies. The CDC’s webinar focused on updates to the CDC’s Vital Signs on the Zika Virus for women and babies, which was released last week.

  2. Lasz, Co-Chief Medical Officer, shared an article about his home state: Pennsylvania is nation's Lyme leader, and worst year could be ahead.

  3. Theressa, Training and Technical Assistance Coordinator, loves the 2017 Million Hearts® Hypertension Control Challenge and recommends that health centers show off their good work!

  4. Claire, Writer and Editor, shared two of a “slurry” of articles on hog farmers and hog farm worker health: Carbon dioxide may worsen hog farmworkers’ breathing problems and House passes limited hog farm liability bill in North Carolina. 

  5. Claire also shared two StatNews op-eds of interest to clinicians serving mobile patients at health centers: Social justice should be a key part of educating health professionals and “To fight physician burnout, I’m making a binder of medical successes.”


Have a safe and healthy weekend.
