International SOS To Host Webinar On Managing Risks Associated With H7N9 Bird Flu In China

TREVOSE, Pa., April 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- International SOS, the world's leading medical and security services company, will host a complimentary April 16 webinar focusing on what organizations need to know to support employees who live, work, or are traveling in areas affected by the new H7N9 bird flu virus.

H7N9 Bird Flu Virus Hits China: What's the Diagnosis? What every organization needs to know to keep their workforce healthy, safe and secure Tuesday, April 16, 2013, 2:00 – 3:00 PM EDT

Background:A strain of bird flu virus recently identified (H7N9) in China is now affecting humans. So far, nearly 40 people in Shanghai and three surrounding provinces have become infected. New cases are being reported nearly every day and there have been fatalities.

Currently, the strain does not appear to spread easily between people. However, it is unclear how these people contracted the H7N9 virus, although it may have been through direct contact with infected birds.

What the webinar will address:In this special webinar on H7N9, International SOS medical and business experts will discuss:

  • Why have we not heard of the H7N9 virus before and where does it come from?
  • What is the risk of infection?
  • What extra precautions should your travelers, expatriates and their families take?
  • What is the best way to monitor the situation?
  • Is it time for organizations to update their pandemic and infectious disease plans?

Speakers: Myles Druckman, M.D., Senior Vice President for Medical Services at International SOS and a leading pandemic expert and thought leader in international corporate health, will be joined by Tim Daniel, Group Executive Vice President with more than 25 years in leadership roles at International SOS.

Who should attend:Anyone who manages or is responsible for employees overseas will benefit from this webinar, including those in the areas of medical, security, business continuity, risk management, travel, HSE, and legal as well as media who cover those sectors.
