The first in a monthly series of free webinars addressing public health law topics will discuss the public health provisions in the Affordable Care Act. The webinar, which will be held Thursday, Feb. 24, at 10 a.m. PST, will feature a discussion of the population health provisions of the health reform law that have not received adequate public attention.
Future webinars will be held on the third Thursday of each month starting at 1 p.m. EST. The Public Health Law Association is hosting this month's webinar, in conjunction with partners. E-mail Lori Fietz at firstname.lastname@example.org by Feb. 22 to register.
The Public Health Library has created a new guide, Pulling Off A Poster Presentation: A Guide To A Successful Scientific Poster Presentation (PDF).
This brief guide will take you through the steps to make your research come alive on a nice-to-the-eyes poster, including:
Included in the guide are templates, tips, and resources on such topics as: how to get SPH logos, where to find a large format printer, web sites on which you can share your poster, and more.
The poster guide is one of several guides and tutorials on the Public Health Library's Instruction/Guides web page, and is an adaptation of the poster guide produced by the UCB Chemistry/Chemical Engineering Library.
eScholarship will extend its robust repository and publishing services platform to include UC undergraduate work, effective immediately.
The California Digital Library and UC Libraries recognize the clear and pressing need for the establishment of a service for the dissemination of substantial undergraduate research and publications, which are an increasingly prevalent outcome of the undergraduate education at the University of California. eScholarship already serves the repository and open access publishing needs of UC faculty and graduate students by providing access to nearly 40,000 research publications and 37 UC-affiliated open access journals representing over 275 academic units.
Our undergraduate research services will include support for:

Our seminar room is equipped with 12 iMacs. If you already have EndNote installed on your laptop, you can work on your own computer. No sign-up is needed.
The Comparative Toxicogenomics Database (CTD) elucidates molecular mechanisms by which environmental chemicals affect human disease. It CTD includes manually curated data describing cross-species chemical?gene/protein interactions and chemical? and gene?disease relationships to illuminate molecular mechanisms underlying variable susceptibility and environmentally influenced diseases.

Here is a sample record for benzene.
As stated in the press release; the CTD "is an attempt to map the complex ways in which chemicals are related to diseases." CTD is now one of the databases in TOXNET, a cluster of databases covering information on toxicology, hazardous chemicals, environmental health, and other related areas. You can also search the CTD from the Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory site, CTD was developed at the MDIBL.
