Einstein in the News

USA Today interviews Andrew D. Racine, M.D., Ph.D. about response by New Yorkers to the spread of the swine flu in the city. Dr. Racine relates parents’ questions regarding having their children tested for the virus and what steps they can take to prevent infection. He advises that because only a couple of U.S. labs can conclusively identify the swine flu virus and its symptoms are similar to seasonal influenza, routine testing is not advised. Dr. Racine is chief of general pediatrics at Einstein.
