May National Call – The Intersecting Health Catastrophes of Climate Change and Air Pollution

May 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

May 24, 4th Tuesday of the Month, at 7PM (Eastern) | 4PM (Pacific)

Dr. Juan Aguilera, Director of Translational Environmental and Climate Health at Stanford University presents The intersecting health catastrophes of climate change and air pollution 

More than 40% of Americans live in places with unhealthy levels of fine particle or ozone pollution. According to The American Lung Association’s 23rd State of the Air report, during 2000-2002, Americans suffered more days of “very unhealthy” and “hazardous” air quality than in the last two decades. Join our National Call to learn more about fine particle pollution, the connection between climate change and wildfires, and the damage that air pollutants cause to our hearts, lungs, and brains.  

 

Dr. Aguilera, an allergy and asthma research scientist, is Director of Translational Environmental and Climate Health at Stanford University. He studies the impacts of climate change, wildfire, and traffic-related air pollution on the immune and cardiorespiratory health of children, pregnant women, and firefighter cohorts.
