News from OCW Consortium blog: Current Events in Context: H1N1 (Mexicaanse griep)

There’s been a lot of speculation about how the H1N1 virus will spread in the upcoming flu season, and how virulent it will be. For a better understanding of the science behind epidemics, what we might expect this fall and how medical systems cope with outbreaks of disease, I’ve pulled together this list of starter resources from Consortium member sites.  Same caveats as last time, though this topic lends itself to a less MIT-centric list.  Please suggest additions if I have missed something on your school’s site.
