MMWR has launched “Defining Moments in MMWR History,” an exciting, new podcast series. The first podcast features former National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases Director Dr. Beth Bell, who worked as an Epidemic Intelligence Service officer or “disease detective.” She was one of the first public health workers on the scene following the deadly, multistate Escherichia coli O157:H7 foodborne outbreak of 1993. During the outbreak, four children died, and about 700 people in four states became ill with severe and often bloody diarrhea.
