Senior-health issues — from whether that flu shot's a good idea to how to maintain health — are the topic of Saturday's Deseret News/Intermountain Healthcare Hotline. From 10 a.m. to noon, Dr. C. Edward Wyne, a geriatrician, and Sandra McNicoll, an advanced-practice registered nurse, will take phoned-in questions. From the Salt Lake area, call 236-6061. Elsewhere, the toll-free number is 800-925-8177, only operational during hotline hours.

The hotline is also going online. You can submit your questions by e-mail to hotline@desnews.com. Deadline for e-mailed questions is Saturday at noon. Depending on volume, answers to some or all of them will be posted online at noon Sept. 19 at www.deseret.com.
