As COVID-19 ravages communities that are already disproportionately impacted by air pollution, it is critical to discuss ways to reduce pollution, especially fine particulates from diesel vehicle emissions.
The webinar will cover how Respiratory Health Association and its community partners are assessing the impacts of pollution in neighborhoods around Chicago, as well as the health impacts of air pollution, how equity and disparities are effected by pollution, and how electric vehicles and infrastructure benefit health and improve air quality.
Webinar will include 5 minutes of introductions, 30 minutes of presentations, and 25 minutes for Q&A.
