Healthy Air, Healthy Children: Addressing indoor and outdoor air quality impacts

Air quality (both indoor and outdoor) has a significant impact on children’s health and is associated with respiratory illnesses such as asthma, cardiovascular disease, and neurodevelopmental delays.

Nurses and public health professionals are critical to protecting children from poor air quality exposures and reducing health effects from these exposures.  This webinar will provide information from the latest research on:

  • What causes poor air quality
  • Exposure pathways for air pollution (indoor and outdoor),
  • Most common health impacts in children from these pollution sources, and
  • Strategies and resources to remediate these sources and reduce health risks.

Join for this webinar on May 3, 12-1PM ET as we celebrate EPA’s Air Quality Awareness Week. This webinar is hosted by the Mid-Atlantic Center for Children’s Health and the Environment (Region 3 PEHSU).

Villanova University M. Louise Fitzpatrick College of Nursing is accredited as a provider of nursing continuing professional development by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation. Participation in this entire program will award participants 1 contact hour.
