Reminds me of the CDC magazine I used to get.

I really missed the magazine when the CDC decided not to print it anymore. It was a treasure trove of wonderful health information. I also enjoyed seeing companies who tried to pull a fast one on the government; especially the CDC get caught and get their just rewards by way of fines. But the great thing about this app is the wonderful information that you can read about and use.

Very well done

I am currently a first year medical student and use the CDC website quite frequently. While this isn't a complete substitute for the website, it is great for quickly and easily staying up to date with what bugs are going around, as well as many other things!

latest version still hangs/crashes on home page

A perfectly functional app was updated on 4/23/2013 and, since then, the home page crashes back to the startup splash screen, on first load, while attempting to preload Health articles. There is an ongoing problem with this (cr)app detecting and maintaining access to existing network connections. Possible inability to connect through network proxy. Host OS is Win8 x64. FIX THIS BEFORE ADDING NEW FEATURES!!!

Great app

I really like what I have access to. I don't have a touch screen and the app won't scroll over so I can access all of the sections.
