Virtual Forum: Near Roadway Pollution & Health

Virtual Forum: Near Roadway Pollution and Health Friday, July 10, 2015 2:00-3:00 p.m. EDT

On July 10, 2015 NIEHS hosted a virtual forum on near roadway pollution and health. The event was webcast live and featured a panel of air pollution experts who discussed the latest research while taking questions from email and Twitter.

Exposure to air pollution is widely recognized as a contributor to adverse health outcomes. In the last five years, the international research community has had a greater focus on the role and effects of near roadway pollution on human health.

This forum spotlighted the insights of scientists who are actively involved in understanding the relationship between exposure to near roadway pollution and human health.
