Disease Detectives B/C

It's my first time on the event this year, doing it at States this Friday. I think this is going to be one of those events where I prepare all of the WRONG THINGS.
My Division is C as in Cat, providing the coach lets me on the team after missing the first meeting.

Attention partners: I will always, always be mad at you for something. Even if you study.

tell me about it
we had the worst luck in this event we just ended up dropping it for state
they always ask about the diseases you didn't study, the eqautions you aren't good at, and a lot of things like that
we even got marked off for using a highlighter

At regionals we had a lot of stuff about catabolism/anabolism, which i still don't fully understand. Also, who are some important epedimiologists to study(other than John Snow)?

catabolism = molecules broken down into smaller pieces = creates energy
anabolism= molecules constructed from smaller pieces= uses energy
i still don't fully understand this, can anyone help?

Your best bet is to learn about H1N1.

The CDC will be writing the test at nationals, so it will be new, and most likely VERY DIFFICULT.
What you are learning may be, even for division B, on plane with college level material.

It should be on risks associated with population growth, but then again, last year's should have been also.
