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.
