With this summer’s severe drought, fire danger, and the frequent haze and smoke from nearby wildfires, we were intrigued to learn that someone has been looking into the mental health impacts of it all. Dr. David Eisenman, professor of medicine and public health, and director of the UCLA Center for Public Health and Disasters, in Los Angeles, joined Dave to tell us about his research into just that.
