It’s not enough to be reactive when hurricanes strike— for hurricane season, the best defense is a good offense. Advance preparation ensures that aid can be delivered more quickly, ultimately saving more lives.

That’s why Abbott is working with Feeding America® and Direct Relief to supply ‘disaster relief packs’ – kits with nutrition and healthcare products— at food banks and clinics to serve as the first wave of aid before traditional relief can make its way to those hit by hurricanes. This is especially important in areas that are still recovering from last year’s hurricanes, such as the Southern U.S. coast and the Caribbean. For more information:
