News this week from researchers in Brazil on hearing loss in infants 

“Delivery” has been in the spotlight this week 

The party conventions mark the official start to the general election. 

Today, the House Labor-HHS appropriations subcommittee marked up its FY17 funding bill, which includes funding for NIH, CDC and AHRQ. NIH received a $1.25 billion increase, $750 million less than the Senate increase.

The news from the CDC this week is concerning.
