Blog Comment Policy
Welcome to the Health Literacy blog from the CDC Office of the Associate Director for Communication. We hope you find the blog a useful way to discuss health literacy news and activities.
Your comments must relate to CDC and health literacy. This is not the place to talk about personal issues, political beliefs, or discuss any other non-business issues. Your comments must relate to the topic at hand and have something to do with the topic in the original post. We cannot answer any medical questions. Only your health care provider can answer questions about your health. This is a moderated blog — we will review all comments before posting them. We expect that participants will treat each other with respect. We will not post comments that contain vulgar language, personal attacks of any kind, or offensive terms that target specific individuals or groups. We will not post comments that are clearly off-topic, promote services or products, or infringe on copyrights. Comments that make unsupported accusations will also not be posted.
We will not publish any comments that contain personal identifying or private medical information about a third party, especially information restricted from release under the Privacy Act or the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
We recognize the Web is a 24/7 medium, and your comments are welcome at any time. However, given the need to manage federal resources, comments will be monitored during regular business hours Monday through Friday. Comments submitted after hours or on weekends will be read and posted as early as possible; in most cases, this means the next business day. While we welcome your comments, we will not respond to every question or comment.
To protect your own privacy and the privacy of others, please do not include phone numbers or email addresses in the body of your comment.
