The online companion to the recently-aired NOVA documentary from PBS, this Web site addresses the alarming rise in the incidence of meningococcal disease in the past ten years, especially on college campuses. The site's main features include a young woman's story about her battle with the disease, an animated depiction of how meningococcal bacteria attack the human body, an interview with the documentary's producer, and a virtual lab where users can create six vaccines using different techniques. The Web site also contains FAQs, useful links, a teacher's guide, a transcript of the program, and more. This is a polished Web site with fantastic multimedia features.
