The Invisible Threat:
Exploring the Adverse Effects of Air Pollution on Respiratory Health
Air pollution is a major global health concern, and its effects on respiratory health are well- documented. From the microscopic particles in smog to the chemicals in indoor air, the air we breathe can have a significant impact on our respiratory health.
In this presentation, we will examine the various forms of air pollution and their effects on respiratory health, as well as strategies for minimizing exposure and protecting ourselves from the harmful effects of polluted air.
- Types of air pollution and their sources
- The effects of air pollution on respiratory health
- Populations most at risk for respiratory problems related to air pollution
- Strategies for minimizing exposure to air pollution
- Indoor air quality and its impact on respiratory health
This presentation will be a combination of lecture-style information delivery and interactive activities. There will be opportunities for attendees to ask questions and engage in discussions about the topic.
At the end of this session, attendees will have a deeper understanding of the relationship between air pollution and respiratory health, as well as practical strategies for minimizing their exposure to polluted air. Participants will leave with the knowledge and tools to take action to protect their respiratory health and advocate for policies that reduce air pollution.
