Pandemic Communication Expert Speaker Marc Ladin Available to Comment

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - April 24, 2009) -


WHAT:

The recent fast-spreading outbreak of swine influenza A (H1N1) in Mexico and the US is causing concern for the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and panic across the general population. With no vaccine in place, the CDC recommends proactive measures as the best solution to preventing more illness and loss of life, making rapid and pervasive communication critical. Various government and healthcare organizations and schools use the Everbridge emergency notification system to send health alerts about contagious diseases to its constituents and to the public to educate them about preventative measures and guidance when symptoms appear. Pandemic communications expert Marc Ladin of Everbridge has spoken frequently over the last three years about the challenges that pandemics such as influenza create for municipalities, healthcare organizations, and other groups. He is available for interviews and to comment.
