As students at Indiana University wrap up their semester, swine flu seems to be the least of their worries. That’s according to Indiana University Health Center Director Diana Ebling, who says she’s surprised by how unconcerned the student body has been, considering all of the media coverage.
“I actually thought we would see more alarm and possibly panic. We are seeing some concern, people have called with questions and come in, but I think people are feeling
informed and know what they can do to try to prevent it,” Ebling said.
Ebling added informing students and faculty about the swine flu was one of the focal points of an emergency planning committee convened by I-U President Michael McRobbie.
Speaking on WFIU’s “Noon Edition,” Ebling also noted the Health Center has been doing more flu surveillance tests this season in order to try to prevent an outbreak on campus.
