Today’s Know What to Do about the Flu webcast has a special focus on bloggers and their readers. The series, sponsored by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), was launched to deliver accurate and timely information directly to the public. This episode’s focus on bloggers recognizes the power of this new medium and demonstrates the Department’s commitment to using innovative communication channels to deliver health information.
Join the live webcast at 3:30 pm to hear the latest update on H1N1 and seasonal flu and learn about resources bloggers can use to share this information with their readers. Detailed information about influenza prevention and treatment, warning signs for parents, anti-viral medications, and vaccinations will also be included. The question and answer session provides you the opportunity to engage directly with leading communication and public health experts, including:
- Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary, Department of Health and Human Services
- Anne Schuchat, Director, National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
Participants are invited to submit questions in advance and during the event using either email or Twitter (by including the hash tag #FluCast). To learn more about the event, visit Flu.gov, your one-stop resource for information on the flu.
