A Utah based doctor is warning Fairbanks residents about the dangers of smoky air.  As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, Doctor Brian Moench (MENCH), who scheduled to speak in Fairbanks tomorrow (Sat.), cites medical research and his own experience in a Salt Lake City hospital, to paint a dire picture of the health impacts of fine particulate pollution.

Dan has been in public radio news in Alaska since 1993. He’s worked as a reporter, newscaster and talk show host at stations in McGrath, Valdez and Fairbanks. Dan’s experience includes coverage of a wide range of topics, from wolf control to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and dog mushing.
