New Web Feature: Research Topics

We are pleased to launch a new research topic feature on the HSPH website.  Hundreds of news items and other important content pieces are now categorized by research topics, geographic location, faculty member, and other criteria.

This new functionality allows us to add related content to news articles throughout the HSPH website in sidebars.

As new news items are added to the HSPH website, articles will be categorized and our database of related links will grow and improve.

On this central initiative, the web team partnered with the Office for External Relations in creating and implementing the tagging strategy.

Jake Yerdon, senior web and application developer, led the Department of Information Technology’s development effort.
