November 2021: Direct From CDC/Environmental Health Services
Journal of Environmental Health (Volume 84, Number 4)
Editor's Note: The National Environmental Health Association strives to provide up-to-date and relevant information on environmental health and to build partnerships in the profession. In pursuit of these goals, we feature a column on environmental health services from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in every issue of the Journal.
In these columns, authors from CDC's Water, Food, and Environmental Health Services Branch, as well as guest authors, will share insights and information about environmental health programs, trends, issues, and resources. The conclusions of these columns are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily represent the official position of CDC.

As environmental health professionals, we constantly strive to provide clear, plain language information to our audiences. Our goal is to provide relevant, easy-to-understand information so they can learn something new, remember important information, and possibly take some sort of action. Our audiences are hungry for information and we must deliver them content that satisfies their hunger.
This month's column explores the bite, snack, meal approach to help lead your audience through your content, giving them the perfect portion to meet their information needs.
