Interpersonal Communication

One person that you can talk to about meningitis is a physician. When talking to a physician, you would be able to learn a little bit about the disease and what it will effect. Another person you could talk to would be a scientific researcher for meningitis, who can give more insite and also tell you the short term and long term affects of meningitis. They can also tell you the developing treatments that are being found for meningitis.
