The Future of Personal Health
December 8, 2020

HealthyWomen CEO Beth Battaglino, RN, has written an article for Mediaplanet's Fighting the Flu campaign, which is running on The Future of Personal Health, stressing the importance of getting the flu vaccine. The CDC estimates that between 24,000 and 62,000 Americans died of the influenza virus last year, but experts warn that the COVID-19 pandemic could make flu season even deadlier this winter and spring. That's why we're joining dozens of other healthcare experts, advocates, and influencers who contributed to this campaign to help better educate the public about the risks associated with the flu, as well as some important preventative measures we can all take to keep ourselves and our neighbors healthy and safe.
