Obviously first read the rules manual. Then, you can...

Check out the wiki: http://scioly.org/wiki/index.php/Disease_Detectives
The test exchange: http://scioly.org/wiki/index.php/2013_T ... Detectives
The Science Olympiad resources page: http://soinc.org/disease_detectives_c, which is chock full of good links.
Also, a good Google search can turn out quite a bit of info.

Environmental Quality is a pretty broad topic, now that I think about it. Sorry for not having any good sites, but I remember on my Regionals test on Friday, my partner and I came across a few questions about ranking the top causes of death in the U.S. due to the environment, as well as other questions on greenhouse gases. (For example, one of the questions asked about a greenhouse gas other than CO2 that's found in the rumen of cattle.)

If you are completely new to Disease Detectives (as you mentioned in your earlier post above), it is probably wise to learn general Disease Detectives concepts (using the links asquaredplusb provided) before focusing specifically on environmental quality.

Those are both things that may be asked - however, I would suggest that you not spend a lot of time on it. Just get some of the famous ones.

I agree with asquaredplusb. For people, I'd say know some of the more famous figures, like John Snow and Hippocrates, but don't spend too much or all your time studying people or bacteria names.
