Talk about making public health accessible. The CDC released a new iPad app called solve the outbreak. It is a game where players are given an outbreak and then clues and they have to decide what to figure out what caused the outbreak and how to stop it.
The outbreak I just solved was a large number of college students becoming ill with vomiting and diarrhea. I traced the outbreak to a common dining hall and then determined that the sandwich line in the dining hall was the common food eaten. Turns out one of the food workers had norovirus.
What a great way to show people one way public health helps us out.
