Description: Caption:
Entitled, “Pertussis Investigation in Ohio”, this image was created by former EIS officer from the Ohio Department of Health, LCDR, Loren Rodgers, PhD. The photo depicts Londell McGlone preparing specimens for serologic testing during an investigation of 918 cases of pertussis-like illness in Franklin County, Ohio. Laboratory testing revealed that the outbreak was linked to two pathogens: Bordetella pertussis, and Bordetella holmesii, thereby, demonstrating B. holmesii’s previously unknown ability to cause outbreaks in otherwise healthy individuals. This photo earned LCDR Rodgers the Second Place award in the 2013 CDC Connects Annual Public Health in Action Photo Contest, in the category of “Domestic People and Programs”.
