Air pollution harms children. Dan Greenbaum, president and CEO of the Health Effects Institute, chats with Sound Medicine’s David Crabb, M.D., about respiratory problems suffered by children living in air-polluted environments. Greenbaum is keynote speaker at this year’s Indiana Environmental Health Summit on Monday, June 6, on the IUPUI campus in Indianapolis.

Book: Changing Planet, Changing Health.  Authors Dan Ferber and Paul Epstein, M.D., M.P.H., will join Sound Medicine’s Kathy Miller, M.D., to discuss their book Changing Planet, Changing Health. The book examines climate change around world and reasons that seemingly subtle changes in temperature and rainfall can set off outbreaks of contagious diseases in the world’s poorest countries.
