Using a puzzle to teach about Kawasaki’s Disease

cube puzzle for teaching about Kawasaki Disease

The best ways to teach are often both the simplest and the most creative. For example, the Kawasaki Disease Foundation of India (KDFI) has created the “KD Info Cube,” a puzzle cube with basic information about Kawasaki Disease, a rare, non-contagious childhood disease that causes inflammation of blood vessels throughout the body. Dr Saji Philip, pediatric cardiologist and secretary general of the foundation, hopes this will provide important health information on this potentially fatal disease.
