Do no harm

Any recommendations for (preferably) online Public Health Journals, Communities, or Blogs?

I sat in a room with Commissioner Frieden today and that, plus my friend giving me all of her GRE equipment, has motivated me to pursue my public health career.

Best answer: You can sign up for news alerts from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health here.

If you're interested in humanitarian aid / development, Reuters AlertNet is a great resource.

And of course the Global Health Council and APHA are great resources.

You'll get better / more specific answers if you elaborate on your particular interest within the field.

If you have any interest in environmental health, the journal Environmental Health Perspectives publishes a broad range of papers and last I checked was still free to access online.

This list of ph organizations with a social justice/health disparities bent may also be of interest.

If you're into infectious disease outbreak reports, the promed mailing list might be of interest.

Kaiser Family Foundation rocks for health policy stuff.
I'm on several listservs they have. They have daily reports, weekly updates, and probably a ton of other stuff if you poke around on the website.

Also, the Guttmacher Institute has a bunch of good info about reproductive health.
