Vaccinate Your Family’s Serese Marotta Elected as President of the Coalition to Stop Flu

May 5, 2023: The Coalition to Stop Flu has elected Serese Marotta, Vaccinate Your Family’s Advocacy and Education Director, as President. She will work in tandem with the Coalition’s Chair, former Senator Tom Daschle, and Executive Director Niki Carelli to ensure Congress is implementing real solutions to end needless deaths from flu.

“Serese’s advocacy inspires us all,” said Amy Pisani, CEO. “After losing her healthy, five-year-old son, Joseph during the H1N1 pandemic in 2009, she has worked tirelessly to ensure other families do not have to experience the same loss. At Vaccinate Your Family, she has built an incredible support network for bereaved families that reminds us daily of why our mission is so critical.”
