Actually, I think it's supposed to cycle back into Environmental Quality.

Just a reminder, all we know about the topic focus next year is that Chalker posted here that "the tentative plan is for the topic to be 'Environmental Quality.'" Chalker is usually a quite reliable source, but don't count on anything until after the summer coaches clinic.

Should that be the event focus for next year, I outlined what that might mean on the last page.

And anyway, it wouldn't be water quality like the existing event. "Water Quality" as a Disease Detectives event would probably be about water-bourne illnesses (which kind of relate to Environmental Quality).

Well, there might be more overlap then you'd think at first, as water quality would also include such things as insect populations (e.g. mosquitoes.)

Does anyone know if Environmental Quality has been a topic for Disease Detectives before?

I think it may have been the topic in 2002. Somewhere around there.

I think it's supposed to be a cycle every few years or so, maybe 2-3 years a topic?

Based on the event handouts from previous years, and the past few years' cycle of topics, the topics are as follows:
2011/2012: Food-borne illness
2009/2010: Population increase based disease
and
2007/2008: Environmental quality (as it shall be next year)
So if you look on the disease detectives page on soinc.org, the 2008 handout states: "2008 emphasis will be on environmental causes of health problems."
Thus, it seems that 2008 was the last year this was a topic and based on a 2-3 year topic rotation, it was also a topic in 2007, for which there is an old nationals test online already! :D

Hope this helps all you folks out there!

Does anyone know of any diseases that we might need to know about for this? (i'm new...)
