May National Call – The Intersecting Health Catastrophes of Climate Change and Air Pollution
May 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT
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.
