Epidemic! uses three case studies to explore such disease-related environmental considerations as fate and transport, monitoring the environment, pollution prevention, regulations and policy, and risk assessment and decisionmaking. Scientific principles of ecology, evolution, and microbial resistance are also introduced. Instructors will find a wealth of teaching resources including an epidemiology role-play, Web-based activities, alignment of topics with science standards, and many links to additional information and resources on the Web. Designed as a resource for teachers, Epidemic! can also be used as a multidisciplinary learning resource for students in high school and college in the areas of biological sciences, environmental technology, allied health, social sciences, math, and English.
