Taping the Measure of Everyday Life episode on Malaysia

Three Bass Connections team members appeared as guests on “The Measure of Everyday Life,” a weekly public radio program highlighting work to improve the human condition, to share their experiences researching respiratory diseases in humans and animals.

Laura Borkenhagen, Jane Fieldhouse and Sarah Philo spoke with Dr. Brian Southwell, director of the Science in the Public Sphere Program at RTI International and an adjunct professor at Duke’s Social Science Research Institute. The episode aired on WNCU on May 6 and is now available on the program’s website and iTunes.
