Breakthroughs in Influenza Treatment Education Center

Influenza season takes place every year in the United States between late autumn and early spring, according to the CDC. While vaccination against influenza is the primary prevention method for the contagious respiratory virus, harsher flu seasons can leave physicians with the herculean task of treating this debilitating sickness. The CDC reported that last year's flu season was the highest on record since 2009's H1N1 strain, with an estimated 48.8 million people getting sick with influenza.

This education center is intended to keep clinicians and physicians treating patients with influenza up to date on the latest breaking news in antiviral therapy,  influenza vaccine administration, and more.
