What WE want to know: what do all those ribbons mean??

Our show team meetings: The Inside Story!!

What exactly do we do as we plan the Heidi Newsroom show every morning??

Today's talker in our morning meeting: what the ribbons mean on CDC officials' uniforms.

This past Monday, we had on Dr. Anne Schuchat from the CDC. She had a chest full of ribbons and that got us wondering. (It doesn't take much to get us wondering by the way...a few days ago we had a 20-minute discussion about a new airline just for pets. It has flight attendants and everything!).

Matt Gannon, our video journalist, quickly solved the ribbon mystery.
