Aching For The End Of Flu Season

Jan 30, 2013

The flu came early and fierce this season, and Vermont doctors are still seeing new cases in their waiting rooms. Wednesday on Vermont Edition, we learn if flu season is on the wane in our region, and how effective the state's prevention efforts have been. Our guests is Chris Finely, the Health Department's chief immunization officer. We also check in with doctors at Southwestern Vermont Medical Center in Bennington, and Fletcher Allen Health Care in Burlington.

Also in the program, new research into pulsars - tiny spinning stars that are heavier than the sun but smaller than a city. University of Vermont astrophysicist Joanna Rankin describes the research she contributed to that challenges essential theories about how pulsars work.
