November 6 @ 12:00 pm - November 8 @ 3:00 pm
Join the Central California Asthma Collaborative for three days of learning, networking and collaboration at the 2019 Valley Air Pollution Health Effects Research Symposium (VAPHER ll)
Day One: starting at noon, you will hear from and interact with well-known medical and public health researchers who will discuss the most recent publications and share the present understanding of air pollution’s complex interactions with health.
Day Two: scientists and regulators will identify the primary sources of air pollution in the San Joaquin Valley, after which industry representatives will join with science, policy, environmental justice and other experts, on a panel to discuss the challenges and opportunities they face as we work together to clean the air. This activity will include a two-hour workshop facilitated by Dr. John Balmes, an internationally recognized expert on air pollution health effects and the Governor’s physician-appointed member of the California Air Resources Board.
Day Three: opens with a review of the first year of California’s groundbreaking AB617 Community Air Protection Program (CAPP) and the impact CAPP has had on both statewide and SJV air pollution monitoring, clean-up and reporting. Panelists will also discuss successes and challenges experienced in San Joaquin Valley CAPP communities. This will be followed by a discussion with technical experts on currently available technologies to conduct community-level air monitoring and data sharing. The final workshop will provide a forum to discuss existing projects and new ideas to integrate public health more directly in the CAPP process.
