PHOTO NOTEBOOK/SLIDE SET OF VACCINE-PREVENTABLE DISEASES. These two powerful
visual aids are intended for clinic staff and community outreach workers who
make immunization presentations. Each includes color images of children and
adults with vaccine-preventable diseases. When you show your patients a
picture of an infant with severe varicella disease or other infections, they
will begin to understand the seriousness of the diseases that vaccines can
prevent. Whether viewed as a photo on a tabletop or as a slide on a screen,
each riveting image is easily worth more than a thousand words.
THE PHOTO NOTEBOOK OF VACCINE-PREVENTABLE DISEASES holds 20
plastic-protected, 8"x10" color photographs and comes in a three-ring
binder. Each picture is accompanied by simple text that explains the disease
portrayed. ($75 per set; discounts for orders of more than five sets--please
call (651) 647-9009.)
