Event description

Description

In the amount of time it takes you to read this description, you will have taken as many as 20 breaths of air. But have you ever thought about how each of those breaths impacts your health and your quality of life?

Join The San Diego Foundation Malin Burnham Center for Civic Engagement for a complimentary lunch and community conversation about San Diego’s declining air quality with health and environment experts, and learn what more can be done for the 400,000 San Diegans who are at heightened risk from air pollution.
