The A-to-Z of germs and diseases: Like no children’s video you’ve seen before [Video]

The A-to-Z of germs and diseases: Like no children’s video you’ve seen before [Video]

At the Thinking Digital conference in Gateshead, UK this week, one of the stand-out sessions was Dr Jennifer Gardy‘s talk about epidemiology – seriously, that woman loves her germs and diseases. So much, in fact, that she turned them into a hand-drawn book – an ‘A to Z of Epidemiology’.

Following the conference, three of the speakers – Gardy, Tom Scott and Jessica Latshaw – collaborated on this video that brings the A-to-Z to life as a children’s video like no other. You’ll either go away enlightened, disgusted or checking your fingernails extra carefully for dirt.
