It's Special Podcast Monday! with a joint podcast with Dr. Steve Kleeberger from the National Institute of Environmental Health Science
In a special joint podcast with Texas A&M's Center for Translational Environmental Health Research (CTEHR.org), we are excited to present Dr. Steve Kleeberger, one of the countries preeminent scientists.  You may think - "wait, this is supposed to be about human performance" - but hang on; we think you'll find what Dr. Kleeberger says to be very applicable to sports medicine (just think about the smog and the Beijing Olympics).  Dr. Kleeberger has published several sports medicine articles over the course of his long career, so he is definitely at home with sports medicine! Also, if you're interested in how the environment affects your health (everyone should be!) hit the link below and check out the other podcasts at CTEHR.  LISTEN NOW!
