Whatever we end up calling it, it's got our attention.
The flu that is spreading around the world is the subject
of the week's "Straight Talk".

National health officials want to change the name of the virus from the Swine Flu to the H-1-N-1 virus, because they say the Swine Flu name is confusing.

If you're confused or just have some questions, this week's "Straight Talk" is for you.
We'll hear from experts from OHSU and from the state health department.
Let me know what questions you have, and we'll get straight talk for you from the folks who know.
Join us Saturday night at 6:30 p.m. for "Straight Talk" on Swine Flu.
Leave your questions here under comments, and let's keep talking.
