July 31 – Healthcare Voices for Clean Air, Member Briefing and Lunch
Join an important PSR-LA briefing and lunch, “Healthcare Voices for Clean Air” on Tuesday, July 31st, from 10 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. at the Page Conference Room at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Join a stimulating conversation on the unique role healthcare professionals can play in advocating for clean air for their patients.
As part of the landmark USC Children’s Health Study, for the past 20 years scientists have followed thousands of children to determine how breathing different types and levels of air pollutants affect their lungs. Now that the children are older, the USC scientists are analyzing other adverse health outcomes. PSR-LA is actively engaged with other environmental health organizations in a campaign to mitigate air pollution from expansion of the 710 freeway.
At this training, Professor Andrea Hricko, M.P.H., will describe the Children’s Health Study findings and will discuss new information on “traffic-related air pollution” (TRAP) and its potential impacts on children. Angelo Logan, East Yard Communities for Environmental Justice, will share updates on the campaign to prevent expansion of the 710 freeway and mitigate pollution.
