Note: This is a recording of a webinar held on May 4, 2011. Training Overview Every day millions of Americans are exposed to air pollution levels that have been shown to be linked to both acute and chronic health effects. Sources of air pollution are not created equal, however, and some are known to be more toxic than others. This talk will provide an overview of specific urban air pollutants of greatest concern and discuss the relative risk of the air pollution burden in Georgia. We will also learn about methods for estimating human health risk and the limitations for interpreting these estimates. Finally, we will discuss interventions designed to protect individuals from air pollution-related adverse health impacts ranging from public policies to individual behavioral modification. The course contains two modules: a content module and a resources and evaluation module. After accessing both modules, learners will earn a certificate of completion. When the certificate is available, learners will see a Certificate button on their dashboard. This recording is approximately 90 minutes. There are no prerequisites.
