Emerging Diseases in your Community
This week, we will look into our own communities and discuss emerging diseases.
Look into health data for your community (Colorado) (either at the country, state, city, or county level). You can look at statistics from your local health department or websites such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Find a disease that is emerging in your community and discuss. Give the rates and the duration of the increase of this disease. What population does this disease affect most? Discuss what you think can be done to prevent further increase in this disease.
The health data cannot be older than 3 years (2017-2020). In the event that classmates live in the same community, do not repeat a topic that a classmate has already chosen and posted to the forum.
