Health Commissioner On Zika Virus; New Flamenco Trio; Valentine's Day Treats

Feb 12, 2016

Today, the latest on the fast-spreading Zika virus.  Once just a Latin American health problem, the mosquito-borne disease has become a global health emergency, with dozens of cases reported across the US, several in DC and Virginia, and on February 11th, the first reported case in Maryland. Baltimore City Health Commisioner Dr. Leana Wen sits down with Nathan Sterner to tell us what’s known about the Zika virus, and what steps the city is taking to raise public awareness of this emerging public health threat.

Then, a rollicking studio session with Juanito Pascual and his New Flamenco Trio, giving a taste of what they’ll be sharing tonight at the Weinberg Center for the Arts in Frederick.

And just in time for the romantic weekend, our regular foodie and restaurant owner Sascha Wolhandler stops by with some delectable dessert ideas for Valentine’s Day.
