Learning Objectives:
  1. Discuss and reveal the unpublished data from University of Wisconsin WISC cohort that defines the early life environmental exposures that significantly decreased respiratory infections during the first 2 years of life in farm children compared to non-farm children
  2. Discuss the strains of the ubiquitous respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) that are associated with increased risk of severe infant illness and later wheezing, which we call RSV strains, as proposed by the Vanderbilt University INSPIRE cohort
  3. Describe the epidemiology between traffic-related air pollution and childhood asthma as defined by the Cincinnati Children's Hospital CCAAPS birth cohort
