CoughSpot 2017-18 Community Engagement Program

We would like to extend the Program's reach to more of New England, all while streamlining the Program to teach people to appropriately cover their cough. We'd like to make the program available to more schools by providing a digitized curriculum, and streamline the Program by enhancing the effectiveness of the Program while constraining costs so we only mail posters and tattoos. We would like to partner with the Rhode Island Department of Health to reach people of all ages to expand the awareness of the importance of proper coughing and sneezing etiquette.
