Blog summit to help Americans prepare for pandemic flu

How do you help 300 million Americans prepare for a flu pandemic? You blog, of course.

Joining APHA's Get Ready campaign in the blogosphere, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is convening U.S. leaders online for six weeks to share ideas and discuss the potential impact of a pandemic on individuals, families, communities and workplaces.

On the Pandemic Flu Leadership Blog, HHS poses questions to participating bloggers related to the threat of a pandemic who then collaborate on ideas for what can be done to help their employees, constituents, customers, congregations and clients prepare.

APHA Executive Director Georges Benjamin, MD, FACP, is one of the leading authorities participating in the online discussion and posted his first blog entry May 26.

Check out the entries and join the conversation through June 27.
