A little holiday fun from the CDC!

Sometimes it's hard to find the right card for a special occasion. Perhaps you want to congratulate a friend on their compliance with epilepsy therapy or suggest that a loved one get tested for syphillis. The CDC has got just what you need on their new health-e-card web site. Who doesn't want a greeting card that includes the diagnostic criteria for ADHD or steps for preventing traumatic brain injury in the elderly? You can urge your friends and family to share the road, fear climate change, quit smoking or get a colonoscopy (Jimmy Smits may have traded some sex appeal for karma by posing for that card). Not sure about the practical uses of this site--although there is a nice, plain appointment reminder ecard--but it has already provided me and my unsuspecting recipients with hours of email entertainment.
