Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (U.S.)
From the webpage: "Hot days can harm physical and mental health. [...] Hot days have been associated with [1] worse pregnancy and birth outcomes, and [2] more emergency department visits and hospitalizations[.]" The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has developed a clinical guidance to help healthcare providers communicate with patients about the risks of heat and its impact on health during hot weather. The guidance offers screening tools, instructions on how to use the HeatRisk Tool and Air Quality Index, and specific guidance for people with asthma, cardiovascular disease, who are pregnant, or who take medication.

Citing HSDL Resources

Documents from the HSDL collection cannot automatically be added to citation managers (e.g. Refworks, Endnotes, etc). This HSDL abstract page contains some of the pieces you may need when citing a resource, such as the author, publisher and date information. We highly recommend you always refer to the resource itself as the most accurate source of information when citing. Here are some sources that can help with formatting citations (particularly for government documents).
