The CDCs new iPad app, ‘Solve the Outbreak’, for the ‘Disease Detective’ in you

Did you ever think you could be a great epidemiologist or “Disease Detective” like those that work at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) solving outbreak mysteries across the globe?

With the new CDC iPad app released earlier this month, “Solve the Outbreak”, you can act out the role of an Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) agent. You will get clues, analyze data, solve the case, and save lives!

You’ll be solving outbreaks by answering questions like Do you quarantine the village? Talk to people who are sick? Ask for more lab results?

The better your answers, the higher your score. You’ll start out as a Trainee and will earn badges by solving cases, with the goal of earning the top rank: Disease Detective.

The new app includes three outbreaks, with more coming soon.

Oh, and by the way, it’s free.
