Dr. Leo Holm of UT Physicians of Overton to discuss H1N1 flu at free Tuesday, Oct. 20 seminar

Monday, October 12, 2009

OVERTON – The H1N1, or swine, flu continues to be in the news and the onset of regular seasonal flu is just around the corner. There’s lots of information about the flu, but it’s hard to know what to believe.

To help sort out this confusion, Leo Holm, MD, of UT Physicians of Overton will present a free seminar, “H1N1 Virus, Seasonal Flu, and the Common Cold,” from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 20, at the Overton Community Center, 505 S. Meadowbrook.

UTP is a physician practice associated with The University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler.

Dr. Holm will discuss the difference between flu symptoms and cold symptoms.

He will explain who is at high risk for the flu and thus needs to get the H1N1 flu vaccine. Dr. Holm also will outline what to do if you do come down with the flu.

The health education seminar is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided.

For more information, please call (903) 877-7147.
