Here I share EIGHT* e-newsletters that I regularly access for a little health inspiration.
CDC Weekly Digest Bulletin (subscribe). A little statistic heavy, but I’m a nerd for stats, you can trust anything coming from the CDC. The latest edition had a wealth of information in advance of this weeks World Tuberculosis Day plus Health Equity Matters, an electronic newsletter intended to promote awareness of minority health and health equity work at CDC. The link to coming health observances is useful – Did you know that April is National Distracted Driver Awareness month.
Office of Adolescent Health Bulletin (subscribe). The OAH Bulletin shares timely information on adolescent health topics, resources to support adolescents, OAH grant programs, and Adolescent Health: Think, Act, Grow. The March edition included great information about adolescent development:
- Physical (hormonal changes and development)
- Cognitive (changes in the way the brain functions)
- Emotional (how adolescents process emotions and stress)
- Social (changes in familial, social, and romantic relationships)
- Morals and Values (how adolescents regard their place in the world)
ASHA Newsletter (subscribe). The mission of the American School Health Association is to transform all schools into places where every student learns and thrives. Their website has links to great resources and their newsletter will keep you up to date with their webinars.
SIECUS E-Updates (subscribe). You are following the work of SIECUS aren’t you? They advocate for the rights of all people to accurate information, comprehensive sexuality education, and the full spectrum of sexual and reproductive health services. SIECUS works to create a world that ensures social justice inclusive of sexual and reproductive rights and their regular emails are full of #HealthEd gold! Their 2018 SIECUS State Profiles will keep you busy as you read about the state of Health Education in your state. They also just launched a new blog which promises to be as equally awesome!
ETR Newsletter (subscribe). Keep an eye on the good people of ETR as they look at the world of health practice and education. In their two newsletters you can read analysis and opinion from leading health and education professionals, discover cool tools, get tips on delivering engaging trainings, and much more. Their newsletters are a great way to stay informed and increase your effectiveness.
NCSH Sexual Health in the News Weekly Digest (subscribe). The National Coalition for Sexual Health in the News weekly online digest was created to keep you up-to-date on sexual health topics currently trending in the media. What I like about these weekly emails is that they draw their Sex-ed posts from a range of sources that I wouldn’t typically access, including subscription magazines and news sites. Follow them on twitter. *Big shout out to my co-worker Jen Tricoli for recommending these emails to me.
* Since writing this blog post Christopher Pepper suggested the following two subscriptions as being worthy of adding to your inbox.
