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 www.twitter.com/CDCemergency 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.
