91% of the world’s population is breathing polluted air, and here in the US, residents in more than 40% of the country are breathing dirty air. And with a changing climate, air pollution will only get worse, causing a larger impact on our health. This issue impacts low-wealth communities, communities of color, children, and the elderly the most.
On May 31 at 12 PM ET, Moms Clean Air Force and Elders Climate Action will host a virtual conversation with leading experts about the effects of air pollution and climate change on public health. This session will provide information, tools, and resources to help you understand the connections and offer opportunities to take action for the health and future of our communities.
Panelists include Molly Rauch, Moms Clean Air Force; Dr. Linda Rudolph, advisor to the Public Health Institute; Dr. Afif El-Hasan, pediatrician focused on asthma and lung health; Bob Yuhnke, USCAN; and Kimberly Mitchell, Great Basin Unified Air Pollution Control District.
