pregnancy
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Air Force Medical Service’s Center of Excellence for Medical Multimedia, or CEMM, recently unveiled an educational and state-of-the-art website on pregnancy for Airmen and their families.

The Pregnancy A to Z website, www.pregnancyatoz.org, is the CEMM’s 12th educational website. The site features videos, 3-D animations, downloadable fact sheets, a section for future fathers, and information on conception, delivery, and genetic counseling training.

“The fundamental purpose of the CEMM websites is to empower patients through self-efficacy,” said Lt. Col. Constance Smith, the director of the CEMM. “The CEMM does this by providing a robust inventory of tools to assist patients with developing self-management skills and behaviors to successfully manage their conditions and diseases.”

Other sites available deal with low-back pain, men and women’s health, asthma, and skin cancer. A full list of sites can be found at www.cemmlibrary.org.

The CEMM promotes the Air Force Surgeon General’s vision of “Trusted Care Anywhere” and makes available products to both military treatment facility staff and their patients.
