This is an excellent resource for students enrolled in Health Sciences. This site will greatly benefit students enrolled in the Nursing program; there is a direct application to their field. I would recommend the inclusion of Pseudomonas aeruginosa and its role in healthcare setting. Consumer snapshot is a great way of showing applicable information to daily life.

The site was a bit bland, but it was a rich source of information. This would be a good site for older students to find more indepth information.

I would recommend this site for students looking to learn more about specific pathogens and toxins. It is a great jumping-off point and would be a wonderful first resource for a class presentation.

I spent time utilizing this information and also developed a lesson plan for it. The quality of the content is excellent and very well organized. This is a very concise and usable site. Student's could benefit from this site if it is incorporated into lessons effectively.

This is an excellence source of information for nursing students in their public or community health courses. Would the contributor please add nursing as an interest site? A case study would be helpful at the site.

Anyone interested in a concise discussion of the microbes and toxins causing foodborne disease should check out this site. Each page discusses the organism and the disease including the factors contributing to infection. This site is text only and can be downloaded in a compressed version for printing by accessing the link to the preface. However, the online version has links to search results on recent outbreaks from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention publication "Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Reports" and to abstracts of recent articles through the NIH Pub Med site. Additional information can be accessed by connecting to appendices on epidemiology, infectious dose, and factors that influence microbial growth in foods.
The link to NIH PubMed is to the old site from which one can access the latest version of PubMed.
