Made possible through an
educational grant from the

science on food-related issues worldwide.

TWO FORKS, IDAHO is one of a series of online science mysteries originally created for Access Excellence, and now hosted by fans of the mystery at KSU. Visit the Master of Public Health program at K-State.

Acess Excellence @ the National Health Museum (AE@NHM), a national science and health education program. Through AE@NHM, high school biology, health, and life sciences teachers gain access to colleagues, scientists, and critical sources of new scientific information via the World Wide Web.

TWO FORKS, IDAHO is a fictional story with a scientific basis. The setting, characters and events are fictitious, and any resemblance to any person, living or dead, is purely coincidental.

For story reasons, we simplified the mystery puzzle. In real life, the medical people would have to consider more possible transmission routes for the disease than we included here.
