Influenza business forum held

Health officials warn the H1N1 flu virus may spike again in our area. On Thursday, officials from the NHC Health Department hosted an influenza business forum to educate area professionals on how to cut down on the spread of flu in the workplace. "We have more people out of work sick, more people out with their children sick and we want to provide those resources and tools so businesses can look at their practices, how they can prevent flu spread in their workplace and encourage flu shots for their employees,” said Janet McCumbee of New Hanover County Health Department. To date, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention report influenza has impacted 11 states, including North Carolina.

Marketing needed

Our business is not healthcare related yet we service thousands of Wilmington residents and businesses... I sincerely wish that NHC would step up their marketing efforts with getting the word out about events such as this.. Had I known, I would have gone for the education. From the looks of the photo in this article, not a ton of other people knew either....

H1N1 Info session

Ditto ! I'm scrambling with a preparedness plan & steps to take for hundreds of employees locally & elsewhere in state... How does one learn of these info sessions?
