National Grand Rounds - December 2020
Changing Toxicity of PM2.5 in a Period of Declining Concentrations: Examples from New York and California
Presenter: Dr. Philip Hopke, PhD, Adjunct Professor, Department of Public Health Sciences, University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry
- How are particle sizes in the environment defined and what is the role of size in deposition in the respiratory tract?
- How did regulatory policies and economic drivers change ambient particulate concentrations and compositions?
- How could changing particle compositions result in increased rates of adverse health outcomes per unit mass of exposure?
Series Moderator: Nicholas E. Nacca, MD, Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, NY
