CDC Wants You to 'Think Fungus' for Fungal Disease Awareness Week

Published Online: Monday, August 7th, 2017
The CDC will host the first Fungal Disease Awareness Week from Aug. 14–18, 2017.

In a video posted on their YouTube page, officials with the CDC urge people to "think fungus" if they have symptoms that don't get better with treatment. The video discusses common types of nail fungus, ringworm, and other types of fungal infections.




On their website, CDC officials note that "increased awareness about fungal diseases is one of the most important ways we can improve early recognition and reduce delays in diagnosis and treatment."
