In the past few months, we at CMCH have added several new information services such as Facebook, Twitter, and Ask the Mediatrician to help keep you updated about the latest news and research on media and children's health. 

We are changing things around a bit, so that this blog will focus primarily on resources for researchers.  There will be two main types of posts: the popular Research Wrap-Ups posted every Friday, and our new Research Toolbox posts on Tuesdays, connecting you with tools and resources that can help you in you work. We will also continue to have posts by guest bloggers occasionally.

Because we have so many information outlets and a variety of audiences, we wanted to outline the particulars of each so that you can decide what's right for your needs and how often you want to hear from us.  All services are free!
