Cornerstones of the Faces of Influenza initiative are the Faces of Influenza Portrait Gallery and Portrait Book -- a photo book and exhibition of dramatic black-and-white portraits and compelling personal stories of famous and not-so-famous Americans, who fall into one or more of the groups recommended for immunization by the CDC.

Visitors to the Web site, http://www.facesofinfluenza.org, can also view the photographs and stories featured in the Faces of Influenza Portrait Gallery. The site offers reporters, consumers and health-care providers various educational materials about influenza and the importance of immunization. These materials are provided in a template and ready-to-use format, and are also available on a CD-ROM. To request a copy of the complete resource kit, e-mail info@facesofinfluenza.org.
