New Animated DVD Helps Children to Better Understand and Prevent Contracting the Flu
Date:12/3/2009

BUFFALO, N.Y., Dec. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- To help children better understand the flu, including the H1N1 virus, and how to prevent contracting all forms of influenza, a new animated health education DVD has been released called Molly and the Flu.

The DVD was created by the Erie Niagara Area Health Education Center (ENAHEC), which is part of the Area Health Education Center (AHEC) program with offices in 40 states.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported there were eight million cases of H1N1 flu virus among children under the age of 18 from April through Oct. 17. This represented 36 percent of all cases nationwide and included 36,000 hospitalizations and 540 deaths.

The 10-minute Molly and the Flu episode is available to school districts, youth organizations, faith-based ministries and the general public for viewing among children ages eight to 12 to address their health concerns and questions in a way they can understand.

This is accomplished through conversations among animated characters Keisha and her friends Molly, Shawn, Leroy, and a talking medical bag called Pepper. The DVD is accompanied by a handbook for parents, educators and health administrators.

"It is so important for us to help our children stay safe and healthy given the abundant and sometimes confusing messages about colds, the flu, swine flu, H1N1 and influenza," said Mary Craig, president of ENAHEC. "The more we can educate youngsters on this critical health concern the better equipped they will be to stay free of all flu types including the H1N1 virus."

Molly and the Flu is the second episode of the Keisha and Friends(C) digitally animated health education series founded by ENAHEC. It follows the first episode entitled "So Leroy Has Diabetes."

Copies of Molly and the Flu can be obtained by contacting Mary Craig at 716-881-8221 or '/>"/>
