Disease Infographic

When health care organizations need to get information to the public, they use a variety of media to highlight what the public should know about a disease. Posters might be placed in doctor's offices, airports and train stations. Pamphlets might be distributed as schools, and memes and graphics might be shared over social media.

Examples of infographics created by the C.D.C to educate the public about ebola.
