Here is an article from Good Morning America featuring Kinsa on January 17, 2019:
At a time when more than 6 million people in the U.S. have had the flu so far this season, “Good Morning America” explored some apps that can help keep you and your family informed and healthy this winter.
Of course always remember to consult your doctor if you’re feeling sick and to read the fine print when downloading any app.
Smart thermometers have been increasing in popularity in recent years, and Kinsa is one of many currently available on the market. You have to buy one of their thermometers for $20 (it’s available on places like Amazon or Walmart), but you can download the Kinsa app for free.
The app lets you build a profile for you and your family, and it allows you to track their symptoms if their not feeling well.
You can also plug in symptoms such as cough, earache or fatigue, and it can tell you steps you can be taking to feel better.
The app is especially helpful for parents because you can plug in children’s symptoms and it can offer guidance based on their age.
For example, it can tell you when you should consult a doctor and give you guidance on how to soothe children’s symptoms. A fever for a 1-year-old means something very different than a fever for a 10-year-old, so this app can help give your child the care they need.
But there is more, if you are an MCA Family!
If you sign up in the app before January 31, 2019 and select Maranatha as your school (this is done from the button on the bottom of the app on your smartphone,) and have not signed up before, you may still receive a free thermometer!
Supplies are limited. Sign up now!
