Flu Summit To Be Held In Greenville

Some of the area's leading medical experts are getting together in Pitt County Thursday, to give you the opportunity to learn more about the flu.

A flu summit is being held at 7 Thursday evening at the Pitt County Commissioners' Auditorium on Fifth Street in Greenville. People who go to the free event will be able to ask questions about the flu, both swine and seasonal, and about the vaccines. WITN's Lynette Taylor will be the moderator.

Some of the panelists include the Pitt County Health Director, Dr. John Morrow, Noel Lee, Pitt County Emergency Management Director, Dr. Beverly Reep, Pitt County Schools Superintendent, and Bill Koch, ECU associate vice chancellor for Environmental Health and Safety.

One of the panelists will be our special guest on WITN News at Sunrise Wednesday. Dr. Keith Ramsey, the medical director of Infection Control at Pitt County Memorial Hospital and professor of medicine for the Brody School of Medicine will join us live to go over the flu, and what you need to know. He'll answer some big questions, like when it's time to see a doctor.

    I know that ares over by the hospital is bad. Every time I have to go there I make sure I have someone with me. You have to watch your back every second on that side of town. Sorry, but I'm just telling it like it is. Congrates Betty, you had the guts to say what WE ALL are thinking.

    Ms. Betty, Please get your facts straight first. The county office is beside the hospital and the School of Medicine, not in "the hood" on 5th street. You're the type of person who would complain if officials do/do not do anything. Your remarks are that of an ignorant person. Not everyone has money but that does not mean they will steal to obtain it. It is unfair and childish of you to make outlandish and outrageous statements that could affect others' personal decisions regarding their health and welfare. Next time, do your research!

    Listen Ms. Betty, Clearly you have no idea what you are talking about because everyone that is on 5th street or affliated with it is not a criminal... However they are primarily African American. So that leads me to believe you have an issue with being around black people! If you took the time to really research the area the summit will take place it is right in the same area of the Hospital (PCMH), the Nursing School (ECU), and Pitt County Government's main office. Now you tell me if they don't have an issue with going there everyday then why should you? So if you get sick you gonna go to a neighboring county to park your car because you don't want to park on or near 5th street? I THINK NOT..so stop being a racist! This is 2009 and nobody wants your car...its probably a beat up "piece of crap" anyway. Slavery days are over and in case you didnt know ALL BLACK PEOPLE ARE NOT CRIMINALS!

    Ok, so you're saying to go to Pitt County Commissioners' Auditorium on Fifth Street in Greenville to learn about the flu. The only problem with that IS, when you come out your car will be gone and you'll most likely be robbed. Good place to have this. I'm sure the crimals are looking forward to this night.
