Healthy Homes Outdoors: Climate Change, Lung Disease & Mitigation Strategies
Tuesday February 13, 2017 from 12 to 1:30 pm
Brought to you by the New England Public Health Training Center and CT Healthy Homes Initiative

Are changes in the climate impacting the air we breathe and our lung health? What can public health do to reduce any harm to our health from these changes? Join us when Dr. David Hill of the American Lung Association talks to us about the medical and public health implications of climate change on pulmonary disease as well as potential mitigation strategies to adopt.

Learning objectives:


  1. Describe the basic scientific evidence regarding climate change
  2. Recognize the effects of climate change on temperature, ozone, particulate air pollution and allergens and their importance in lung disease.
  3. Discuss climate change and lung disease implications and mitigation strategies from a public health perspective

Healthy Homes Programs aim to assure that all residents live in a healthy and safe home environment. Please join us as we bring regional and national experts together for a winter webinar series on “hot topics” for New England Healthy Homes practitioners. Presenters emphasize practical applications, useful resources and best practice models.
