This week on IAQ Radio Alison Johnson, Chair of the Multiple Chemical Sensitivity Foundation, will be our guest. We recently did a show with Steve Temes on this issue and he has since joined the board of the Multiple Chemical Sensitivity Foundation.

He suggested we get Alison on to further discuss the issue and we got it done. Multiple chemical sensitivities are touchy subject for IAQ, disaster restoration and building science professionals.

What is MCS? Is it a one size fits all issue? How do we work with the chemically sensitive? How do we avoid making things worse for the chemically sensitive?

Mrs. Johnson graduated from Carleton College at the head of her class.  She studied mathematics at the Sorbonne on a National Science Foundation Fellowship and received her Master’s degree in mathematics from the University of Wisconsin, studying on a Woodrow Wilson Fellowship.

In 2010, she received a Distinguished Achievement Award from Carleton College for her work in the field of chemical sensitivity.  Ms. Johnson has published three biographies: : Wallace Stevens: A Dual Life as Poet and Insurance Executive; Henry James: His Life Revealed Through His Letters; and Louis XVI and the French Revolution.

She has also presented her book Gulf War Syndrome: Legacy of a Perfect War  and 9/11 documentaries on Capitol Hill, in New York, Washington, San Francisco, Seattle, London, Wiesbaden, Halifax, Ottawa and Montreal.

We are privileged to have her join us this week as we continue to seek to LEARN MORE on IAQ Radio!
