Morning Shift: August 3, 2015

we are nearing the end of the dog days of summer; kids will be heading back to school soon, the number of us on vacations will dwindle and the outdoor music festivals will be fewer. In the meantime, camp goes on…and it’s not just for kids anymore. We talk to a counselor at a summer camp for adults. It’s part of a larger trend of creating the kind of fun for adults that we used to have as kids. We also take a look at Chicago’s booming hotel business and how long it will continue. Did Lollapalooza this weekend bring trigger an uptake in bookings? Plus, chances are your doctor is NOT an African American male. According to a report released Monday, the number of black men entering the medical profession is now fewer than it was in 1978, which was a high point. We talk about why that is and what needs to be done to bring up that number.
