On this final day of CMV Awareness Month, we are so excited to announce that our biggest endeavor so far has come to fruition! The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare has added CMV information to their website and produced their own CMV awareness materials. Hooray! Check it out right here!
How wonderful to see CMV featured this week by the CDC! Awareness is increasing, we can feel it! Check it out here: https://www.cdc.gov/dotw/cmv/
This morning, the Idaho CMV Advocacy Project was featured on KRFY radio’s morning show! They discussed CMV and what the Project is working on these days. Click here to listen to the podcast: http://www.krfy.org/podcast/
Here they are in action!
We’ve been hard at work creating CMV awareness materials! This year, our focus will be on distributing materials to childcare centers, since childcare workers are a high risk population for being exposed to CMV.
We have bad news and good news. The bad news is that our grassroots project cannot afford to distribute our materials across the whole states. Members of our team are passing out the information in our own neighborhoods.
The good news is that YOU have our permission to print and distribute these materials if you would like. Access the materials for FREE right HERE! OR, if you would like us to send you a FREE awareness kit, just contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and we will deliver/mail you a kit as soon as possible while supplies last.
June is CMV Awareness Month in Idaho!
With the help of Senator Abby Lee and the other Idaho legislators, June has officially been adopted as CMV Awareness Month in the state of Idaho. June has previously been named CMV awareness month nationally, but adding the designation for our state, specifically, serves to add an increased level of emphasis and awareness. This article denotes the specific awareness activities that the Advocacy Project is working on as June quickly approaches.
Why does CMV get so much less news coverage than Zika? Great article published by Health News Review.
