Air Quality

Focus on Air Quality

Our air quality is impacted every day by consumer products in our homes that release chemical fumes, rapidly emerging environmental health concerns like e-cigarettes, extreme heat due to changes in our climate that can worsen air pollution, and a host of other influences. We collaborate with UNC researchers to translate the research on impacts of air quality, sharing it with public health professionals, K-12 classrooms, community organizations and the public.
