             The University of Kansas Hospital has treated its first patient with the H1N1 flu. Just like last year, the flu season is starting late and there have been few cases of any kinds of flu reported.

            Dr. Lee Norman, chief medical officer at The University of Kansas Hospital, talks about how our area is doing compared to the rest of the country, what we can still expect this flu season and why it’s not too late to get a flu shot.
