ABC News reports of the largest Measles outbreak in Southern California this month, and many parents are concerned. The occurrence of a rarely-seen disease prompts many to question the effectiveness of vaccines, preventative care, and the communication plans for notifying the public of an outbreak. Most rely on their doctor visits to stay informed, although these infrequent visits just aren’t enough when an outbreak can spread within days.

How do you stay informed about public health? Are there specific venues you use for reliable health information, or knowledgeable figures in healthcare?
