Earlier this year, an H1N1 video contest was started by Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. It called on the American people to help spread the word about the H1N1 virus through creative video submissions.

The people responded and videos were submitted from all over the country. The video communication and public health experts narrowed the submissions down to 10 finalists and allowed the public to vote for their favorite video on YouTube.

Earlier this week at George Mason University, the winning video was announced—the 'H1N1 Rap' by Dr. Clarke. Dr. John Clarke is the Medical Director for the Long Island Railroad. Stats for Swine Flu Hip-Hop Trending: Older & Mild
