The following is information about a tool that was featured in the February 2015 issue of The Guardian of Public Health (OPHP, Lansing MI.)
"With HealthMap's Outbreaks Near Me application, you have all of HealthMap's latest real-time disease outbreak information at your fingertips.
Open the app and see all current outbreaks in your neighborhood, including news about H1N1 influenza ("swine flu"). Search and browse outbreak reports on the interactive map, and set up the app to alert you with a notice automatically whenever an outbreak is occurring in your area. If you know of an outbreak not yet on the map, be the first to report it using the app's unique outbreak reporting feature. You will be credited and your report will be featured on the website."
