“The Flu & You: Steps to Assure Community Health” — a panel discussion on efforts to prevent the spread of illnesses such as the Swine Flu and other health issues — will be presented Wednesday, May 13, at 6 p.m. in the Community Room at the Coeur d’Alene Public Library.
Sponsored by the library and the Northwest Association for Biomedical Research (NWABR), the panel will be moderated by Laurie Hassell, NWABR’s Regional Manager, and will include representatives from the science community and local agencies involved in protecting the health of the community and responsible for responding to health emergencies.
“Our goal is to provide a forum for officials and the public to discuss how we as a community respond to potential health threats — such as the Swine Flu,” Hassell said. “People have questions about what they need to be concerned about and how to respond. The panel should bring together the people who are equipped to provide the answers.”
Audience members will have the opportunity to submit questions in writing and in person to the panel members. Most of the participating agencies will also have printed material about safeguarding community health to distribute.
