Risky behaviors such as tobacco use and obesity are top causes of disease, disability, and death. Proper inoculation can prevent illness and death; yet often citizens are not informed of the consequences of risky behaviors nor of outbreaks of contagious illness. Information may exist on agency websites, but this is not accessible via mobile devices, is often hard to find, and is not current.
