Kent State is trying to keep students, faculty and parents informed about the H1N1 virus and the seasonal flu via a link from the university Web site, at www.kent.edu/flu.

The site was launched in spring when the H1N1 virus was becoming a concern among the community. Emily Vincent, director of university media relations, said the site is sometimes updated multiple times a day as information develops. She said it contains information about prevention, flu vaccines and links to further resources.

“It’s the best way to communicate with all different audiences: students, faculty, and parents,” Vincent said. “It’s a great resource to direct people about swine flu.”
