MedMyst: Animal Alert!

New Review

An outbreak of disease is affecting people in a distant region—it's time to get to work! Scholars take the role of scientists as they learn more about the illness, discover the possible causes, and find a way to prevent the further spread of the disease. The simulation lets users choose from multiple career paths in the final lesson of the seven-part MedMyst series.
