Bring FDA Tobacco Content to Your Website for Free

As the Digital Communication and New Media Director at FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products, I am thrilled to announce the launch of a new content syndication pilot project that provides free tobacco-related web content for use on other websites. This new service helps meet the growing demand for up-to-date, reliable public health web content by empowering FDA stakeholders to add value and depth to their sites by integrating the latest FDA tobacco content. Syndication also furthers FDA’s open government goals by enhancing public collaboration and participation with FDA content.

As a pilot project, we are unveiling this new service with more than 40 web pages of tobacco content available. Over the coming months we will work with stakeholders to make improvements, test functional capabilities and learn from their experiences. We will use these lessons, as well as data from surveys and metrics, to improve the service and inform possible expansion across other FDA health topics.

We’ve already learned a lot from the innovative work the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have done to advance this technology. Through their efforts they have improved the consistency of health information, reduced content sharing barriers and provided vital information more cheaply and easily. In the last several years, CDC led the use of this technology to foster collaboration and health information sharing, while providing metrics to highlight the success of their syndication efforts. HHS has worked tirelessly to facilitate information sharing within and across agencies, which gave us many insights into how this service is being used in the field.

I am excited to showcase our FDA content syndication services and hope that you will want to learn more about how the technology works, the benefits and how you can get started. For those of you wanting to try content syndication, simply sign up, choose the content you would like to syndicate and copy and paste our web code into your website. Our syndicated content is automatically updated ensuring you always have the latest, most accurate information. It really is that easy—and if you get tripped up, there are tools available to help guide you through the process.

I encourage you to check out our new content syndication hub and let us know what you think. Your feedback and comments will help us improve the site and learn about technical issues that need to be addressed. Please also let us know what FDA tobacco content you would like to syndicate by requesting new pages to be added to the syndication hub. Thank you so much for your time. I am eager to learn from this pilot project and watch our syndication efforts evolve.

    Not such a good idea how will you control the age group of the people who are viewing tobacco products. If you do it by cookie’s you have the chance on public computers children will be exposed to tobacco ad’s.

    This is a good way to share information about tobacco products through the internet. Just need to make sure that parents will guide their kids in using the internet.

    I think it is a great way to spread the word and get your message out on the internet.

    Thanks for your comments. We are currently not syndicating any content that would not be appropriate for children to view or anything that is not publicly available already on FDA.gov.

    Very interesting indeed. I support every project that helps eradicating of things like tobacco, and I’m glad that regarding this, situation here in the US is much better than in Eu for example.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering
    if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for
    quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
