The proposed ban on text messaging at the wheel by interstate truck and bus drivers was named the “Best Prevention Idea of the Week,” while the possibility of gonorrhea becoming a drug-resistant superbug was named the “Worst Prevention Idea of the Week."
The “Best/Worst” awards are announced each week in “Prevention Matters,” the blog of Partnership for Prevention. Nominees are submitted by Partnership staff as well as the general public, and are voted on by the staff. Partnership for Prevention is a nonpartisan organization of business, nonprofit and government leaders who are working to make evidence-based disease prevention and health promotion a national priority. More information is available at http://www.prevent.org/.
