In launching a five-week Pandemic Flu Leadership Blog, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has reached out to the online community to help Americans become more prepared for a possible influenza pandemic. The last couple of weeks have featured posts by government, health, business and religious leaders on a range of topics generating many active threads and comments from the public and online pandemic preparedness community.
APHA's Dr. Georges Benjamin has been participating. See his latest entry at <http://blog.pandemicflu.gov/?p=40>.
The blog summit comes in advance of this week’s Pandemic Influenza Leadership Forum, a one-day conference held in Washington, D.C. convened by HHS Secretary Michael Leavitt.
Watch the blog for forum results and join the conversation. The blog summit runs through June 27.
