Protect Your Kids From MRSA: Time To Teach Your Children!

"With fall sports in full swing, equipment cleanliness and item-sharing on and off the field may get overlooked between carpools, homework and bedtime. But, skin infections like MRSA, a potentially life threatening antibiotic resistant Staph infection, are the cause of 56 percent of all infectious disease outbreaks in competitive sports in the U.S.


It’s important that as parents and coaches we do our part to help prevent the spread of MRSA. You can begin by getting involved in the Equip them Well program through three simple steps – collect, disinfect, donate."

MRSA stands for Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.  And it can kill.  Really. 

Watch this video to learn more about this program:

Help stop the spread of MRSA now!

my hubs got mrsa on a spider bite wound. We were plenty scared! Thankfully, he responded very well to ab treatment. i don't think enough people are aware of how serious this can be!
