Families Fighting Flu Public Education Efforts

Stay Healthy This Flu Season

In the United States, flu season can begin in October and can run as late as May, with peak activity typically seen in January or February. Flu awareness is critical, and FKH is proud of its ongoing work with Families Fighting Flu, a national nonprofit organization comprised mainly of families whose children have suffered serious medical complications or died from flu, to educate about the importance of flu prevention.

This season, FKH worked with Families Fighting Flu to develop two educational webinars to arm consumers, including moms and moms-to-be, with information about what they can do to protect themselves and their family from the flu. We are also proud of our previous award-winning work with Families Fighting Flu to develop and release a national broadcast public service announcement (PSA) to bring home the message about the potentially devastating effects of the flu by sharing the personal story of a Families Fighting Flu member family. The PSA was recognized by the Public Relations Society of America with a Bronze Anvil Award of Commendation and received PR News’ Platinum PR Awards Honorable Mention.
