I will work with Cynthia on the project detailed below.
Using data from the World Health Organization, we will get the following information about the diseases that we diagnose:
- If the disease is curable
This will be done by searching WHO for the disease name and parsing the returned information regarding the disease.
For Tuesday April 17: we expect to have parsed the information from the WHO.

I am currently searching for genetic disorders within WHO.
Looks like WHO may be a dead end. I am currently looking at other websites that might provide treatment information for various genetic diseases - such as www.freemedsoftware.org.
