CDC Ebola Microsite for healthcare workers

CDC has created an Ebola microsite, a collection of selected web pages, that can be embedded within any website. With a simple embed code, a hospital, health system, library, or health department website administrator can pull in a collection of dozens of CDC pages, a news feed, and a Twitter feed featuring the most current Ebola content, guidance and resources for healthcare practitioners.

 

The content is updated by CDC and requires no updating by the host website. The embed code for this microsite is available in CDC’s new syndication site, the Public Health Media Library, https://tools.cdc.gov/medialibrary/.

 

The Library offers the microsite as well as 60+ Ebola HTML web pages. Images, infographics, videos, and other media are also being added. Instructions, guides to syndicating materials, and access to technical support are readily available on the site.

HELMETS - Bicycle, Multi-Sport and Ski

WELCOME SPRING!!  The Windsor Health Department has a great selection of helmets available for sale.  Anyone, no matter what their age, who is "On Wheels" needs to wear a helmet.  You need to protect you and your family by wearing helmets during all the seasons while bike riding,  skate boarding, or whipping down an icy slope.  Placing a helmet on a child's head from the first time they hit the slopes or get on a bike/toy with wheels will encourage and reinforce this good practice for a lifetime.  

 

 Our Helmets:

  • Come in All Sizes
  • Come in a Variety of Colors
  • Will be Adjusted and Checked for a Proper Fit
  • Available in the Health Dept. - Top Floor/Town Hall, 8am-5pm, M-F

RABIES PREVENTION AND YOU

Rabies is a viral infection that is common through out the world and since the early 1990's there has been an increase in the number of cases in the North Eastern United States.  The rabies virus is carried and spread by mammals.  When an animal or human is exposed to and becomes infected with the rabies virus it attacks the brain and nervous system.  If left untreated in humans and animals, rabies is fatal.   

 

For more information on rabies prevention and treatment please see the attached document.

Healthy Teeth for School Children

Children of all ages need strong and decay-free teeth in order for their bodies to be healthy. Windsor’s recent “Dinner on a Dime” event helped to send this and other health-related messages to parents and children.  Dr. David Bloom of Windsor supplied young participants with dental goodie bags that included toothbrushes, toothpaste, and dental floss. Thank you, Dr. Bloom!

 

Information on dental care for schoolchildren in Windsor is available at the Windsor Public Schools website www.windsorct.org under “Department Services” / “Health Services” / “School Based Dental Services”. Click here to access the site directly.
