Group Projects: Resource Centers
The MCH Group supports the development and maintenance of numerous federally-supported
resource centers. These resource centers provide three critical functions:
(1) acting as a repository of critical, evidence-based resources not
accessible from other sources; (2) serving as an information filter to
the most relevant, highly selected online resources in the field found
across the Web; and (3) providing a current awareness mechanism to the
most current and emerging professional literature in the health field.
