Do you have any nagging questions about the H1N1 flu? Then please join me at a special blogger briefing at HHS on Monday at 3:30pm ET. In a Better Health/MedPage Today exclusive, I’ll be live-blogging the event from inside the HHS studio in DC, and the conversation will be available via live webcast. Please send in your questions in advance (press release and instructions are below) or feel free to forward developing questions to me via Twitter: @drval during the event. Hope to chat with you soon!
Please join the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for a special briefing on H1N1 flu. As your readers turn to you for accurate and timely information about the ongoing H1N1 pandemic, we want to arm you with the most current information and take your questions on H1N1 and seasonal flu. Send us the questions that you or your readers want to know and our communication experts will answer them during the webcast. Send questions to firstname.lastname@example.org by Sunday, November 22th at 3 pm (EST).
Join the live webcast on Monday, November 23rd at 3:30 pm to learn detailed information about influenza prevention and treatment, warning signs for parents, anti-viral medications, and vaccinations.
