Good Free App of the Day: CDC - Centers for Disease Control

CDC By Centers For Disease Control and Prevention is a great medical resource. This app offers a wide range of current medical articles as well as prevention tips. Many special needs children's health issues can be complicated. With this app, parents can stay up to date on current disease control information.

Typically, I would pass right over an app containing the feature "Disease of the Week." However, the CDC app's Disease of the Week offers key facts, a quiz to test your knowledge, and prevention tips on a different, common place disease each week.

The CDC app has an easy to navigate layout. The home screen contains a grid view table of contents consisting of Health Articles, Disease of the Week, Vital Signs, Preventing Chronic Disease, Videos, an image library and more.

The information is constantly updated, making sure you have access to the latest information. The CDC app keeps the latest health information in one easy to use location.
