Through a partnership with Medscape/WebMD—the largest source of CME content on the Internet—ACPM prepares a monthly preventive medicine column for publication on the Medscape site. ACPM selects the topics and identifies members to author columns under the heading, "Perspectives in Prevention from the American College of Preventive Medicine.” Each article is featured in Medscape’s new Public Health and Prevention (PH&P) homepage, the MedPulse newsletter, and throughout many other primary care and subspecialty sites on Medscape.


To date, ACPM has published the following columns:
