Is My Child’s Health at Risk from Climate Change?

August 6
4:00 pm
- 5:00 pm

One in ten children in Florida suffers from asthma. A child’s developing lungs are more sensitive to air pollution. They also breathe faster than we do, exposing them to more toxins.

Join us on Facebook Live for a conversation between a climate change advocate and mother of six, and one of Florida’s top doctors to discuss the impacts of climate change on asthma and other health risks children face—especially those living in low-income communities of color.

PANELISTS:
Thais Lopez Vogel, Founder & Trustee, VoLo Foundation and mother of six
Dr. Shahnaz Fatteh, President, Broward County Medical Association; Allergy Immunology Specialist, Director, and Associate Clinical Professor

MODERATOR:
Heather McTeer Toney, National Field Director, Moms Clean Air Force

This event is sponsored by Moms Clean Air Force, Environmental Defense Fund, and Volo Foundation.
