Pandemic Influenza Storybook: Personal Recollections from Survivors, Families, and Friends [website] [open html - 0B]
This website provides an interactive storybook from previous pandemic influenza outbreaks. "The need for the Pandemic Influenza Storybook became evident as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) conducted Crisis and Emergency Risk Communication (CERC) throughout the country for public health professionals involved with a variety of emergency response communications activities. The 'Basic' CERC course debuted in 2002 and two additional modules have been added; 'Leaders for Leaders' and 'Pandemic Influenza'. The storybook is a resource tool for the latter module for certified CERC trainers and trainees. The online storybook contains narratives from survivors, families, and friends who lived through the 1918 and 1957 pandemics. Additionally, stories from the 1968 pandemic will be added to this resource as they become available."
