Healthy Air for All: Time for Action!
On March 27, from 4-5:30 pm, this forum, sponsored by the Social Justice Council and part of Bard College’s Worldwide Teach-In on Climate, will focus on health effects of air pollution, communities suffering the most harm, and how we can take collective action.

Our speakers are Dr. Teresa Munoz, OB-GYN from Kaiser Richmond, and Dr. Juan Aguilera Mendoza, Ph.D., M.D., a post-doctoral research fellow from Stanford who has investigated the effects of traffic-related air pollution on children with asthma and relationships among transportation-related issues and cardiorespiratory biomarkers in low-income border populations. Both are bilingual and bicultural members of Climate Health Now.

Based on clinical experience and research, they will share their insights on the health impacts of the fossil fuels used in all aspects of our lives –from powering our cars to heating our homes and more.

Join us and learn how these health issues can affect all of us. Learn about the environmental justice issues and the groups most at risk. There will be time for questions, and we will discuss what we can collectively do to make the changes we need to have healthy air for all. –Sheila Tarbet (starbet99@gmail.com)
