Air quality is actually a very complex field of study, cutting across physics, engineering, public health, epidemiology, and more. This in-depth but non-technical event will give participants a deeper understanding of air quality issues facing our region, including primary sources and connections to human health, as well as the intersection of outdoor and indoor air quality and the need to study them together. Participants will have the opportunity to interact with an array of physical and online tools that foster citizen science on air quality, and learn about programs and initiatives with which they can connect. Regional air quality experts will present a high-level view of the data, research and policy efforts underway. The event’s location, The Heinz Endowments’ new 31st conference center, will provide the perfect backdrop for seeing and connecting with air quality in our region.
