The National Library of Medicine is pleased to announce a new design for the Tox Town website, which provides consumer-level information on everyday locations and situations where toxic chemical exposure might occur.
The new design, informed by extensive user research, will:
- Enhance search optimization
- Improve readability
New Tox Town features, reflecting consumers’ frequently asked questions, include:
- New Community Action Tools Page with guidance for community engagement and resources for finding local data
- Newly added Reduce Your Risk information with practical steps to avoid and address exposure
- New content organization into Sources of Exposure and Chemicals and Contaminants rather than previously used neighborhood scenes
Due to low usage, the website no longer contains Spanish language materials.
