This webinar was originally presented on September 15, 2021. Air pollution is one of the most encountered environmental hazards in early life. Exposures during pregnancy and in childhood have been linked with many of the most important pediatric health concerns in the United States. Catherine Karr, MD, PhD, MS, FAAP will present concepts related to exposure sources, trends, environmental justice considerations, and mechanisms of toxicity. Dr. Karr will discuss epidemiologic evidence associating air pollution with child health outcomes including asthma, adverse birth outcomes, behavioral and cognitive development, obesity, pediatric cancer, and increased blood pressure. Lastly, intervention and prevention strategies including policy and programmatic approaches will also be highlighted.
