August 25, 2002. In Vivo, a publication of the Columbia University Health Sciences, describes how the Mailman School of Public Health is revitalizing its introductory epidemiology course. One of the elements contributing to this revitalization is an outbreak simulation developed by CCNMTL. Working with Dr. Daniel Herman, Dr. Lydia Zablotska, and Dr. Ian Lapp, CCNMTL has developed a fictional town, Epiville, complete with newscasts, and other online materials.
