This talk was recorded live at DFTB18 in Melbourne, Australia. With the theme of ‘Science and Story‘ we pushed our speakers to step out of their comfort zones and consider why we do what we do.

Associate Professor Rob Roseby is a respiratory physician. You might see many adults huffing and puffing around the local park every Sunday, bright red in the face, gasping for breath. This shouldn’t be the case for the children in their charge.
