Original Video Series
From the Annals of the IOM
Current episodes range from Oregon’s 2012 Foundation Farm raw milk outbreak; to a 1999 multi-state “sproutbreak”; to Cold Stone Creamery Salmonella and the efficacy of PulseNet.

The stylized narration choice in this series shows that epidemiology can save lives—and be fun, too!
Your Body Vs.
Each episode highlights a particular source of outbreaks, as well as measures one can take to limit risk. Thus far, videos have been produced featuring SalmonellaE. coli, and Listeria, with plans for many more including: Cryptosporidium; Campylobacter; Vibrio, and botulism!
