anaphylaxis101.com: A Guided Tour of Your Community
Anaphylaxis101.com is the cornerstone of Mylan Specialty's “Get Schooled in Anaphylaxis” initiative, which was created to increase anaphylaxis awareness and prepare everyone in school settings to respond to anaphylaxis.
"Despite increasing prevalence of food allergies and anaphylaxis, an internal audit and supporting research showed that school communities were not using anaphylaxis resources in a consistent way,” the agency explained.
Anaphylaxis101.com appeals to children and adults. Animated sibling characters, Ana and Phyl Axis, lead a video tour that lets viewers select customized information.
“Outstanding creative and content for multiple audiences,” said one judge. “This is an engaging disease education site,” noted a second.
Emmy Award-winning actress Julie Bowen, whose son has life-threatening allergies, tells her family's story in a video on the site. The agency noted that Bowen “worked to rally the community” by participating in media interviews.
September 26, 2012 to March 31, 2013 the site got 76,671 visits (67,703 unique visitors). Users visited an average of 2.07 pages per visit, for a total of 44,947 visits. More than 56.6% of visits came from referrals and media placements such as Anderson Cooper Live, The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Parenting.com.
