IDSA E-mail Alerts Keep You in the Loop on Outbreaks, Drug Recalls

IDSA offers opt-in e-mail news services that will keep you in the loop on breaking news and announcements from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) about infectious diseases outbreaks, drug recalls, and other events affecting your work.

ID News Clips

ID News Clips is a daily news clipping service provided to keep IDSA and HIVMA members and leaders apprised of information about infectious diseases that is available on the Internet. 

CDC Health Alert Network Service 

This service forwards Health Alert Network (HAN) messages from CDC to subscribers. It is intended for members who do not receive these messages from other sources. Recent messages included a notice about hepatitis A infections linked to children adopted from Ethiopia and a notice about the outbreak of botulism in July that was associated with canned chili. 

FDA Message-forwarding Service

This new service forwards ID-related messages from FDA on label changes, adverse events, newly approved drugs, and other safety information on FDA-approved drugs and biologics. Recent messages included notices about label changes for Rocephin, an Invanz recall, and the botulism outbreak.
