 'WARNING: THE IMPACT OF POLLUTION ON THE UPPER ALIMENTARY AND
 RESPIRATORY TRACTS' TELECONFERENCE TO BE HELD MAY 8
 The National Institute of Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD) and the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery (AAO-NHS) announce a video teleconference live via Satellite: "Warning: The Impact of Pollution on the Upper Alimentary and Respiratory Tracts."
 Lister Hill Auditorium
 National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Md.,
 Friday, May 8,
 1-3 p.m. EDT.
 Environmental pollutants can adversely effect the body, particularly the ears, nose and throat, and both older people and very young children are at greatest risk. To inform scientists, physicians and the public about the adverse health effects of pollution, a two-hour live interactive satellite teleconference will be broadcast from the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, on May 8. An expert panel will discuss the following: how environmental pollutants can cause or aggravate disorders of hearing, balance, smell, taste, voice production and swallowing; the effects of noise pollution on hearing; home and work environmental deterioration from indoor and outdoor pollutants; subtle and long-term effects of toxicants; and the reduction of health problems from pollution through efforts at the local, state and national level.
 The NIDCD has sponsored various downlink sites throughout the United States and Canada for physicians/scientists to lead discussions and ask questions via satellite to the panel of experts. A toll-free 800 number will be available at intervals during the broadcast to allow for call-ins. The NIDCD encourages calls with questions for the panel.
 The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education has accredited the AAO-HNS Foundation to sponsor continuing medical education for physicians. This is a continuing medical education activity for seven hours of credit in category 2 of the Physicians Recognition Award of the American Medical Association.
