New Research report from UC BERKELEY — The 2009 H1N1 influenza virus used a new strategy to cross from birds into humans, a warning that it has more than one trick up its sleeve to jump the species barrier and become virulent. http://www.berkeley.edu/news/media/releases/2009/12/08_h1n1_flu_vir...

Good site: www.flu.gov.
I've been attending the bi-monthly International SOS webinars on the pandemic. I think PHI HR also knows about this great source. 700 people signed up for the last webinar and many companies have already put in plan a contingency plan.

SOS has a great tool kit that helps you figure out how a company should respond and when.

H1N1: How Ready Are We? Preparing the Health Communities for a Flu of Pandemic Proportions

When: Friday, October 16, 2009 1:30 - 3:00 pm Pacific


On June 11, 2009, the World Health Organization declared that a global pandemic of novel influenza A (H1N1) was underway. The statement was a reflection of the spread of the new virus, not it's severity: at the time, more than 70 countries had reported cases of the new virus. Cases have now been reported in every state in the country. As flu season approaches, it is anticipated that the number of illnesses, hospitalization and deaths associated with H1N1 will increase dramatically.

Please join Dialogue4Health (D4H) for an interactive Web Forum with Dr. Art Reingold, professor and head of the Epidemiology Department at the UC Berkeley School of Public Health, to discuss the myths, realities, and challenges that face the medical and public health communities in preparing for and dealing with the H1N1 pandemic.

Are you up-to-date on the CDC's social media and emergency communication strategies for H1N1 and the upcoming flu season?
