Today:   Janet McCabe, the assistant director of the Indiana University Environmental Resilience Institute, tells us about the work that I.U. students are doing this summer in Gary and Michigan City to collect information about greenhouse gas emissions.  The cities are among 13 across the state involved in I.U.'s first Resilience Cohort.  The data will help residents and public officials create action plans to reduce emissions and to improve air quality.  The cities will get the data collected later this year.

Franciscan Health EMS Academy director Rob Dowling is with us to explain the series of classes begining this summer and fall to give students in Crown Point and Valparaiso the opportunity to earn their state emergency medical technician certification.  The Academy is teaming up with the MAAC Foundation  to offer the courses  for the first time at its training center.  And Side Effects Public Media reporter Leigh Denoon tells us about how students at a Newton County school are learning about the dangers of e-cigarettes.
