[Perspectives] Healthy planet, healthy people

I first met Tony McMichael over the nappy changing table at a parent run child care cooperative in Chapel Hill, NC, USA, in 1972. He was an assistant professor of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and he and his wife Judith had a young daughter. Tony was a rising star in epidemiology. I was a postgraduate student from London, also with a new baby, working on my masters thesis in social medicine. I was pleased to find a fellow jogger, although Tony was much more serious about running than I ever was.
