5150.0 Air Quality and Environmental Health

Wednesday, November 11, 2009: 12:30 PM
The purpose of this session is to listen to new, important locally/community-based research projects from various parts of the USA--urban and rural, continental and island--concerning outdoor air pollution from natural (like volcanos) and anthropogenic sources (like motor vehicles and industry) and potential acute cardiovascular and respiratory health effects.
Session Objectives: After attending this session, attendees will be able to identify natural and anthropogenic sources of outdoor air pollutants; name specific combustion pollutants subject to federal and state regulation; describe susceptible and vulnerable population subgroups including potential environmental (in) justice issues.
