About Sneezes+Diseases

Sneezes + Diseases began as a popular resource book for caregivers and parents. It includes information on how to prevent the spread of infections and communicable diseases, with fact sheets explaining what signs to look for and how to care for children.

We've now turned it into a website with even more helpful tools! Check out "Prevention" and "Conditions + Diseases" in our nav menu to get access to the same great content. Of course, the resource book is still available too.
