TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Clostridium difficile can cause close to 500,000 illnesses in a single year.

Prolonged use of antibiotics can lead to the disease.

On Tuesday, a local student received an award for patient education on the subject.

Noah Vanosdol won the Patient Education Collaborative Contest.

It's put together through the State Department of Health along with other groups.

Noah created a pamphlet as part of a contest and won.

"It was a class assignment, everyone submitted one. It feels good, it helps make me feel better about my work. It makes me feel more confident that what I'm turning in is good," Noah said.

Noah is a student at Ivy Tech studying visual communications.
