By Kristina Duda, R.N.:

I am excited to be a part of the About.com team as your Cold and Flu Expert. I feel I have a great deal of knowledge about common illnesses such as the common cold and flu because I have treated so many patients with these problems and spent many years educating individual people and the general public about these issues. I have a passion for education and want to do all I can to make sure people feel confident they are making the best decisions about their own health and the health of their families.
