Avian Flu Information Web Site Launched

Story posted August 28, 2006

Bowdoin College has developed a Web site to direct members of the Bowdoin community to the latest information about avian influenza, and to provide information about ongoing preparedness efforts at the College. The site is located at www.bowdoin.edu/health/avianflu.shtml.

The College has a detailed response plan in place to manage the anticipated issues associated with a local outbreak of epidemic disease, including avian influenza. This planning conforms with the most recent recommendations of the national Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the international World Health Organization (WHO), and is coordinated with parallel efforts by local, county, and state health and emergency response agencies.

The Bowdoin site will be updated periodically, or when events warrant.
