As I used to write and lecture on insects and how the diseases they transmitted affected history, I am also interested in non-insect transmitted diseases.

This book contains several short stories about the actions of medical specialists with the Center for Disease Control, how they were able to identify diseases and how they were transmitted. It is a good introduction for young adults, especially for those interested in a medical career.

For a complete adult-level history of the CDC's Epidemic Intelligence Service, read "Inside the Outbreaks" by Mark Pendergrast.
