A number of adults and children from all four neighborhoods have presented at local clinics and the emergency room with complaints of abdominal pain, sudden severe diarrhea, nausea, and fatigue. What form of formal mass communication would be most effective for educating the public about the causes, symptoms, and prevention of E.coli in the city?
