To save lives - possibly millions - teaching Before Not After Disaster Strikes; to reduce transmission of airborne infectious disease in public congregations The 1918 flu pandemic killed more people than WWI. There is a current new swine flu in India which could become a world wide issue next winter. This cause underlies virtually every other form of community outreach. We seek to encourage you to join our corps of self-trained public health educators, to train the trainers working in homeless shelters, jails, schools and churches that people need to cough into a cloth, respirator, or, at least, their elbow, when colds and flus strike. Also we follow breaking and historic epidemics of airborne infectious disease.
