E&E Distinguished Lecture: Air Pollution & Human Health

Join the Baker Center on Monday, April 10 at 5:30pm as we present our highly-anticipated Energy & Environmental Distinguished Lecture of the semester! This lecture will be given by Dr. Michelle Bell from Yale University and is entitled Air Pollution and Human Health: Reflections on Research and Paths Forward.

Decades of research have demonstrated that air pollution is clearly linked to adverse outcomes for human health, yet many unanswered questions still remain. This presentation will review several key aspects of past air pollution research and current research directions, including paths forward for future work. Research themes include the move from the study of a single pollutant to that of a multi-pollutant mixture, effects of the present day to effects under a changing climate, health impacts of the general population to those of sensitive subpopulations, and the transition from U.S. and Western-based studies to global health.

The event is free and open to the public!
