Description:Caption:
This image, entitled, “Using Death to Inform the Living", was created in June, 2015, by the friend of U.S. Public Health Service, Commissioned Corps, LT Lauren Brewer, while they were visiting the Wake Memorial Cemetery located in Cary, North Carolina. This was one of the entries in the 2015 CDC Connects, Public Health in Action Photo Contest.
Additional Information:
Lt. Brewer tell us that, “In the National Center for Health Statistics, Division of Vital Statistics, Data Acquisition and Evaluation Branch, we collect mortality data from the states and territories. Our work is normally done inside, on a computer, not in a graveyard, but truly every record corresponds to a very personal death of a loved one, as represented by the graves in this picture. We use this data to inform the living of what medical conditions are killing us, as an American people. The hope is that by using this data we can focus on prevention efforts, and improve the quality of life for all.”
