Why do infectious diseases emerge where they do? What makes them spread so quickly? Where do we look for the next one?
Outbreak is currently at the Health Museum!
My son was a plague doctor for Halloween… so when he saw this exhibit at the Health Museum, he was determined to go.
Our planet is connected more than ever before: by global travel, trade, technology, and even our viruses.
At the Health Museum, we learned the connections between human, animal, and environmental health, dive into case studies and personal experiences from epidemic-fighters from around the globe, discover how outbreaks have affected the Greater Houston Area, and engage in games that challenge you to identify and contain an outbreak.
Look at the pictures!
