The CDC Promotes Health Virtually

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has joined two virtual worlds, Second Life and Whyville, to promote health information. Second Life is a virtual world for adults, and has a virtual CDC headquarters and a virtual CDC exhibit booth. In Whyville, which is for children, the CDC gives flu shots for the “Why-flu” to children’s avatars.
