Nov. 19 Worland Business Roundtable focuses on swine flu

Posted November 2, 2009

POWELL, Wyo. - It's not just for women anymore. Beginning in November, the Women's Business Roundtable is changing its name and opening its discussion to anyone interested in business. Jeanne Hejtmanek will be the first featured speaker at the new Worland Business Roundtable Thursday, Nov. 19.  Lunch and networking opportunities start in the Washakie County Library at 11:45 a.m., with the program, "How to Protect Your Business Against Swine Flu, "getting underway at noon.

Hejtmanek, the health educator for Washakie County Public Health, said the Wyoming Department of Health (WDH) updates its information about the H1N1 (swine flu) epidemic continuously. She'll provide up-to-the-minute statistics and plans for vaccine administration. Because the vaccine falls under guidelines set by the WDH and Center for Disease Control, she'll also explain their processes, as well as distribute H1N1 handouts.

Although admission to the roundtable is free, thanks to Big West Auto Plex and Pascalite for providing lunch, preregistration is required by noon Wednesday, Nov. 18.

For more information or to register, e-mail Nancy Trickey or call (307) 347-8541.  

The Worland Business Roundtable is sponsored by Big West Auto Plex and Pascalite through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration and Northwest College Center for Training and Development. Program support is provided by Washakie County Library and Worland-Ten Sleep Chamber of Commerce.
