This is the Radio Boston rundown for Wednesday, September 1. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • Starting this afternoon and through Thursday, parts of new England are on flash flood watch, as leftover rain from Hurricane Ida is set to hit the region. We talk to Chris Besse of the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency to find out how people can best prepare and keep themselves safe.
  • With a number of school districts starting this week, we're taking some time to check in with educators around the state. Today, we hear from Melissa Mastrolia, president of the Massachusetts Art Education Association, and Chelsea Schools Superintendent Almi Abeyta.
  • It's time for another edition of Ask The Doctors. With the delta variant still spreading across the country, and a number of schools and offices returning this week, we'll take listener calls with our panel of medical experts. Today, we're joined by Dr. Benjamin Linas, an infectious disease physician at Boston Medical Center and Associate Professor of Medicine and Epidemiology at the Boston University School of Medicine, and Dr. Katherine Gergen Barnett, vice chair of Primary Care Innovation and Transformation in the Department of Family Medicine at Boston Medical Center and Boston University School of Medicine.

This program aired on September 1, 2021.
