What Works: Evidence-Based Interventions for Your Community

What Works: Cancer screening fact sheetWhat Works fact sheets -- each on a different public health topic -- are colorful, easy-to-read summaries of Community Preventive Services Task Force findings and the systematic reviews on which they are based. Print "What Works" fact sheets as handouts for presentations or exhibits, attach them to webinar materials, or link to them from slides.

Each fact sheet has two separate pieces: a bi-fold brochure about the topic, and an insert that lists the Task Force findings on that topic. [Designed to print front-and-back, head-to-head in color, on white 8.5" x 11" paper.] You can download these individually or as a combined file.

We welcome you to click on Contact Us to comment on the fact sheets and tell us how you use them.
