I’m Emily Sher, the Editorial Assistant for AJP-Lung. I have a BA in English Literature from Trinity College and love to write about things that really matter. I don’t think it’s too dramatic to say that in an increasingly hazardous, polluted environment, being in the know about respiratory science could save your life.
