With colder weather upon us, so too is cold and flu season. For parents, this year is particularly challenging with kids experiencing symptoms including fever, congestion, and sore throat due to other respiratory viruses co-circulating alongside COVID-19.
On November 17 at 12 p.m. ET, Choosing Wisely Talks will provide practical advice about managing symptoms of respiratory tract infections and avoiding unnecessary antibiotic use in children. Expert speakers will provide perspectives from the primary care office and emergency department with case studies and practical tools.
