West Nile virus is in the headlines. West Nile is predominantly spread to people through the bite of an infected mosquito. Persons over 50 years of age, particularly those over 65, have the highest risk of developing severe complications such as encephalitis and meningitis. “West Nile Virus – Seniors at Risk” will be held at 10:30 a.m., Tuesday, August 26. Leasa Roach, RN, GNP-BC, ACHPN with the Christus St. Michael Senior Health Center, will discuss precautions seniors can take to prevent mosquito exposure, symptoms of the virus, and medical care options for those who have been infected.
