Influenza: Is This an Emergency?

Thursday, June 25, 2009 - 2:00pm (EST)



View this archived webcast below today!

First it was the "swine" flu, and then, the more politically correct novel H1N1 type A influenza. While governments scramble to prepare and respond to continued worldwide spread of this new illness, misinformation abounds. The public is confused and in some cases, approaching panic. You need the facts about influenza, including past, present and future outbreaks. EMS, fire and law enforcement members need information and tools to respond to influenza as professional public health partners. This webcast will tell you how.
