Check out this web-based program that helps to reduce the spreading of colds and the flu. A recent British study in the Lancet found that use of this program, which emphasizes hand washing, can reduce the risk of infections.

During autumn and winter, more than 8,000 people viewed the four weekly sessions of the online program. Over a three-month follow-up period, they were 14 percent less likely to have any kind of respiratory tract infection and 20 percent less likely to have a flu-like illness than their counterparts who didn’t view the program. For more helpful information on hand washing, you can also visit the hand washing section on CDC’s website.
