Joining Brian and myself in our virtual studio we are delighted to have Dr Emily Hall, one of our lecturers in Veterinary Education here at the RVC. Emily has been working with the VetCompass group looking at Heat Related Illness in the UK and we thought we'd talk to her to about her research in this field and the questions that left unanswered.  We hope that you enjoy.

Emily has her own blog on this topic too, where you can find links to the papers.

There is even an infographic:
And Congress abstract recordings to watch:
