Dr. Gronczewski will take audience members' questions after leading a discussion of various summer emergencies, such as sunburn and other heat- or sun-related conditions, outdoor allergies, and insect bites.

To participate in the Web chat, users will need a PC or MAC with a broadband Internet connection and Adobe Flash Player installed. Download the latest Adobe Flash Player at http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/.
