Mentoring in Medicine Announces #FightingtheFlu Campaign National Contest

Mentoring in Medicine is very pleased to announce the very first #FightingtheFlu Campaign National Contest! We encourage students from around the United States of America to join in on the fun! We invite artists from middle school, high school, and college to participate in this contest.

Our hope is that participants will:

  •  Learn about the flu and public health
  •  Prevent the spread of the flu
  • Educate the public about the flu — stressing the importance of taking the appropriate measures to prevent the spread of the flu


1.) Create a social media graphic that raises awareness about the influenza (flu) virus and how to prevent the spread of it!

2.) Become a public health educator by promoting your social media graphic on social media using the following hashtags: #FightingtheFlu & #mentoringinmedicine

Participants will have a chance to win a $200 cash prize! The deadline for this contest is Friday, April 12th, 2019.
