Webinar on Assessing Health Impacts of Air Pollution at the Community Scale
This webinar, hosted by Dr. Patrick Kinney of Boston University’s School of Public Health, shows how scientists and practitioners are using NASA satellite data along with land-use information to develop fine scale estimates of PM2.5 air pollution and its associated health risks within specific communities.
Air pollution exposure and health risk assessment at the community scale – on the order of kilometers or less corresponding to individual neighborhoods or localities – is of increasing interest to urban planners, environmental health practitioners, and researchers. Join this webinar to learn how scientists and practitioners are using NASA satellite data along with land use information to develop fine scale estimates of PM2.5 air pollution and associated health risks within communities.
Date and time: Friday, September 28th, 2018, 2:00-3:00 pm ET
