Swine flu 101: UW faculty discuss latest information today, April 29

April 29, 2009

Three of Wisconsin’s leading minds on infectious disease are teaming up today to offer medical professionals, and interested members of the public, the facts they need to know about swine flu.

Christopher Olsen, George Mejicano and Dennis Maki of the UW School of Medicine and Public Health will present “Swine Flu: What You Need to Know,”  from 3-5 p.m. today, April 29, in room 1325 at the Health Sciences Learning Center, 750 Highland Avenue.

Although the discussion is being offered for continuing medical education credit through the school’s Office of Continuing Professional Development and is designed for physicians and nurses, it is also free and open to the public.

Maki is the former head of the UW School of Medicine and Public Health’s Section of Infectious Diseases. George Mejicano is associate dean for continuing professional development and an associate professor of medicine with UW School of Medicine and Public Health. Christopher W. Olsen is associate dean for academic affairs with UW School of Veterinary Medicine and a professor of public health.
