Business Pulse: 5 Ways CDC Protects the Health of Your Business, launched today by the CDC Foundation, provides America’s employers with CDC guidance and resources in five key areas that protect employee health, including emergency preparedness, food safety, travelers’ health, global health security and flu prevention. This issue of Business Pulse highlights challenges faced by businesses in these areas, along with an interactive infographic that provides useful facts and links, advice from CDC experts, and online CDC resources.

American businesses face complex health challenges ranging from the threat of an influenza pandemic that could cost the U.S. economy $100 to $250 billion, to global health threats like Zika virus and natural disasters that cost lives and cause economic disruption. CDC’s efforts to keep America safe, healthy and secure are critical to a healthy workforce and economy.
