CDC launches video contest for the zombie apocalypse

Apparently the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention zombie apocalypse post I wrote about earlier this week - the one written by Rear Admiral Ali Khan, MD, MPH - was quite popular: Health Blog is reporting the entry got some 1.2 million page views as of earlier this afternoon. And now:

. . .the CDC is following up Khan’s message with a video contest. The agency is asking people to create 60-second videos showing how they’re preparing for any emergency (“hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, zombies”) and send them to by June 3. Winners will be chosen by the “CDC Zombie Task Force.”

How I'd love to be a member of the CDC Zombie Task Force.
