Announcing a new Meetup for CFI Portland Meetup Group!
What: Science Pub: Spread the Word, Not the Flu: H1N1 and You
When: November 2, 2009 6:30 PM
3702 SE Hawthorne Blvd
Portland, OR 97214
FROM THE OMSI WEB SITE:
Spread the Word, Not the Flu: H1N1 and You
As the H1N1 flu virus spreads across the globe, myths and mistaken information are sure to follow. Rumors about how the virus is spread (“You can get it from eating pork!”), to how it can be prevented (“The vaccine will make you sicker!”), to how it can be treated (“The virus is resistant to all anti-viral drugs!”) take a bad situation and make it worse by adding panic into the mix.
At this Science Pub you will get accurate information on the status of this pandemic from those working on the front lines: Health Officers from the Office of the Tri-County Health Officers—Clackamas, Multnomah, and Washington Counties. Hear real-time reports about how H1N1 is spreading, vaccine operations, and ways to keep yourself healthy and safe.
We will record audio from this Science Pub and post it on our website, so if you’re feeling sick, STAY HOME!
THE EVENT IS FROM-- 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Doors open at 5:00 p.m.
Come early for food and drinks!
$2.00 is their suggested cover charge. We hope to see you there!
