Addressing Air Quality in the Region’s Latino Communities
The Greater Philadelphia Region has made tremendous strides in improving the region’s air quality but statistics indicate that the region’s Latino communities still suffer disproportionately from the health impacts of poor air quality.
Please join the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission for a roundtable discussion about on-going efforts to improve air quality in Greater Philadelphia and how these groups can work more closely with and effectively in Latino communities to reduce health disparities from air pollution.
- Dr. Marilyn Howarth, University of Pennsylvania Center for Excellence in Environmental Toxicology
- Joseph Minott, Clean Air Council of Phildadelphia
- John Keith American Lung Association
- Tressa Dabney, Congreso de Latinos Unidos
A roundtable will follow brief presentations by the speakers. The goal of the roundtable is to improve communication among groups working on health and air quality and the Latino communities in the region with the outcome of reducing health disparities and improving air quality for everyone.
