If you’re a parent who relies on a day care center, the last thing you want to hear is that the air quality in those centers may be making your child sick. Yet that may be happening here in Milwaukee. Research shows some day care centers, which are supposed to be protecting our kids, may be using chemicals that are triggering serious asthma attacks in youngsters.

Here to talk about the problem on this edition of UWM Today is Anne Dressel, assistant professor in UWM’s College of Nursing.

Tom Luljak hosted UWM Today on WUWM for more than two decades and is the inaugural host of Curious Campus.
