The blog relay used a “Focus on the Family” theme to encourage readers to focus on protecting their family during the holiday season and beyond. The participating partners helped CDC reach audiences across the lifespan, including general family, parents, people living with chronic diseases, and seniors.Click on the blog relay participants below to read each partner’s contribution to the 2015 NIVW Blog Relay:
