Fungal Disease Awareness Week 2018
October 1 - October 5
The second annual Fungal Disease Awareness Week is scheduled for October 1-5, 2018. CDC organized the observance last year to raise awareness among the public and healthcare providers about fungal diseases, which often go undiagnosed. Increased awareness about fungal diseases is one of the most important ways to reduce delays in diagnosis and treatment, leading to better health results and lives saved. We will again be encouraging the public and healthcare providers to “Think Fungus” when a person’s symptoms are not getting better with treatment.
