3) Data is Beautiful – John Hopkins

How about this Dashboard created and updated in real-time by the John Hopkins Center for System Science and Engineering. That’s what we call multidisciplinary. Check out the Dashboard

4) The Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Facebook Page

The tireless and consistent work done by the Health Promotion and Disease Prevention has been critical to convey information to the public and we would like to give them a heads up for the great job that they’re doing.
