Today, the first probable case of swine flu surfaced in Oregon.
Several more have emerged in Washington.

I just got off the phone with OHSU pulmonary specialist, Dr. David Jacoby.
He told me we shouldn't get in a tizzy over the swine flu.
We should take it seriously,but calmly.

Dr. Jacoby and Dr. Mel Kohn from the Oregon Health Department will join me this week for "Straight Talk" on the swine flu.
How concerned should we be?

This week's show airs Saturday night at 6pm on KGW Newschannel 8.
If you have questions for the doctors, leave your comments here or send them to me by email or on Twitter.
You can follow "Straight Talk" now on Twitter at @KGWStraightTalk or follow me at @LauralKGW.

I'll see you Saturday evening at 6pm.
Let's keep talking.
