Event Link: Air Quality and COVID-19: Connections, Health Impacts, and Racial Disparities
This webinar will discuss the preliminary implications of findings that suggest higher rates of COVID-19 infection and mortality in individuals who have faced long term exposure to poor air quality (PM 2.5). It will also focus on the findings that communities of color, especially African Americans, are especially at risk from the health impacts of both air pollution and COVID-19. Speakers will include both health experts and environmental justice leaders working to combat these synergistic health threats.
