Community Outreach on Respiratory Hazards and Illnesses in Southwestern Pennsylvania

According to the American Lung Association's 2019 "State of the Air" report, Pittsburgh’s air quality was ranked the 7th worst in the country. Poor air quality threatens the health of Southwestern Pennsylvanians, especially vulnerable populations, such as older adults and those living with infectious lung diseases. This project proposes to give residents of Southwestern Pennsylvania accurate, timely, and useful information and guidance on how they can protect themselves and their families. To do this, EHP will educate the public on respiratory hazards and illnesses in their community; offer free health resources and mobilize community partnerships and leaders to use those resources to educate others; and disseminate resources, such as MedlinePlus and Tox Town, and information that link people to other health services.
