St. Joe’s flu-detecting technology

. May 1, 2017.

St. Joseph School in Sylvania (5411 S. Main St.) had a smart ally in helping to stop the spread of flu season this year. Health technology company Kinsa selected the school from thousands of applications nationwide, enabling every family with students enrolled at SJS to receive a free smart thermometer (valued at $19.95). Part of Kinsa’s FLUency initiative, these tools work with iPhones to take accurate temperatures and then provide insight in what steps parents can take next. SJS was closed down for three days last year due to a flu epidemic. These thermometers will help keep sick kids out of school and parents informed as to how they should treat illnesses.
