Joint Session 4 Aerosols, Aeroallergens, and Health

Tuesday, 8 January 2019: 1:30 PM-2:30 PM

Hosts: (Joint between the 10th Conference on Environment and Health; and the 21st Conference on Atmospheric Chemistry )
Karin Ardon-Dryer, Texas Tech Univ., Geosciences, Lubbock, TX and Jeremy Hess, Emory Schools of Medicine and Public Health, Atlanta, GA

This session invites presentations addressing aerosols, natural and anthropogenic, such as aeroallergens/pollen, dust, fly ash, and other particulate matter (PM) linked to health consequences including asthma cardiovascular health, skin and eye conditions, and the transmission of infectious disease. Studies addressing the interactions between aerosol exposures and human health; investigating changes to global aerosol production, variability, tracking, and forecasting; and those involving novel research methods (clinical, laboratory, epidemiological) are encouraged.
