Students across the country can learn about H1N1 Flu and ask questions of the government’s leading experts during a free webinar on September 22nd. The event, offered as part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Ready Classroom campaign, is open to any class interested in joining and aims to address the science behind H1N1, preventative steps students can take to avoid getting the flu, and general preparedness activities.
Throughout the hour-long webinar, students and teachers will get the opportunity to post questions about the presentation, which will then be answered by the speakers:
- Dr. Ann Schuchat, Director, Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases
- Bill Modzeleski, Associate Assistant Deputy Secretary of the U.S., Department of Education’s Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools
- Representatives from Discovery Education and FEMA
Providing an interactive and engaging way to learn about H1N1 Flu will ensure that students have the latest information about the ongoing flu season and know what they can do to stay healthy.
