STS Highlights: February 2022
February is our shortest month of the year and thematically, the busiest with Black History Month, Valentine’s Day, Random Acts of Kindness Month, and Canned Food Month. As we navigate through the year, I am choosing a positive outlook and hope you do too. In line with February themes, I plan to focus on:
- Promoting inclusion and diversity
- Practicing sexual harassment awareness
- Engaging in random acts of kindness
- Providing a local food pantry with donated canned goods
In keeping with monthly themes, I’ve curated the resources below.

It’s Flu Season!
The CDC’s recommendation for getting a flu vaccine for the 2021-22 flu season is: GET THE SHOT! Flu viruses are constantly changing so it’s not unusual for new ones to appear. A lot of research goes into each year’s vaccine. You should not wait for activity to be rising or high in your community to get a flu shot. The best way to reduce the risk of flu and its potentially serious complications is by getting vaccinated each year.
Covid-19 & Variants
Prevention Measures to protect against respiratory illness like Covid-19 and Variants remain largely the same.
