To kick off National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM), the Alliance has released a new “pocket film” called Our Best Shot: The Importance of Vaccines in Older Adults.
During the month of August, the Alliance will help spread immunization awareness on social media using the hashtags #OurBestShot and #NIAM16. We encourage you to participate by sharing this vital information across your own social media platforms.
June 6 through 12 is World Heart Rhythm Week, which provides an opportunity for us to learn more about heart rhythm disorders, including atrial fibrillation. So, for our Health Resource of the Week, we present you with our excellent series of educational materials about AFib.
For our Health Resource of the Week, watch this short "pocket film" about how heart valve disease affects women. It's estimated that one in 50 women have valve disease; this grows to one in 10 for those ages 75 and over.
