FLUency in Action. A partnership between Kinsa & Lysol ®

FLUency is a program sponsored by Lysol® to help stop the spread of illness in schools using real-time community health data. Student sick days take a toll on families, cost school districts millions of dollars in funding, and negatively affect student achievement.

The program offers free, connected Kinsa smart thermometers to all families and school staff, which they use to understand their children's health and the impact on the entire school community.
