The 3 learning objectives for the talk are:

  1. Explain the heterogeneity of bronchiolitis
  2. Discuss the viral and bacterial factors related to acute severity and post-bronchiolitis wheezing
  3. Recognize that acute respiratory infection pathobiology involves interaction among virus, microbiome, and host

About the Speaker
