A team of doctors and nurses from Cooper University Hospital will travel to the CBS3 studios in Philadelphia on Thursday, October 1, to participate in a live H1N1 Phone Bank during Eyewitness News (4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.).
During the broadcast, viewers will be invited to call or email their questions and/or concerns about H1N1. The team expects a range of questions, including symptoms and treatments of H1N1, who’s at risk and who should receive the vaccine, and what to do if you or a family member becomes ill.
