The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (the CDC) is inviting all iPad users to help solve disease outbreaks—virually, that is.  So, if you have enjoyed the film “Contagion” or medical detective novels, this new app may be for you.

Three fictional outbreaks are based on real-life events. Users get clues, review data and make decisions in trying to identify the cause of the disease outbreak.

This is called “Solve the Outbreak” and is available free from the iTunes store.

Enjoy!
