Media Tour Conducted by College of American Pathologists Discussing How to Protect Yourself and Your Children from Winter Respiratory Illnesses

The holiday season is in full swing, and it's crucial to safeguard ourselves, our children, and our communities against respiratory illnesses like the outbreak we are seeing in China.

Just when we thought it was safe to travel and gather for the holidays, pneumonia and RSV outbreaks here in the US and around the Globe are rising.

With all the shopping, planning, cooking, and traveling, nobody wants to spend the holidays in bed sick or maybe even in the hospital fighting nasty viruses that continue to circle the globe.

A nationwide media tour was conducted featuring President of the College of American Pathologists, Dr. Donald Karcher, sharing some tips on keeping you and your family safe when celebrating the holidays.

Topics during the media tour that President of the College of American Pathologists, Dr. Donald Karcher, discussed included:

An understanding of exactly what is happening and how concerned we should be.

What can parents look for and do to mitigate the illness and the effect on the rest of the family, including elderly friends and relatives?

Why testing is still so important in corralling these illnesses.
