The air in the Pittsburgh area is cleaner than it has been, in some time – but not clean enough, for those in the health professions, who study the impact of pollution on children, who suffer asthma and other diseases related to the exposure to pollution. We’ll hear the results of a study commissioned by the Heinz Endowments, about children who are at risk for breathing ailments, including those who live near areas where pollution is still a challenge.
Our guests are Deborah Gentile, M.D. – Director of Allergy and Asthma Clinical Research, in the Division of Pulmonary, Allergy and Critical Care Medicine at the Allegheny Health Network – who was the lead investigator, in this study – and Philip R.S. Johnson – Program Director for Science and Environment, at the Heinz Endowments.
