Our skin protects us from our environment, and global warming is changing that environment. In turn, new research suggests this changing environment can alter our skin. In this episode we explore the impact climate change has on children with eczema and allergies. Our guests are: Dr. Mary Prunicki, Director of Air Pollution and Health Research at the Sean N Parker Centre for Allergy and Asthma Research, Stanford University; Dr. Marc Rothenberg, Director of Allergy and Immunology at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital; Dr. April Schachtel, chief of dermatology for the VA Puget Sound healthcare system in Washington State; and Dr. Markus Boos, pediatric dermatologist at Seattle Children's Hospital.
