- Air Quality and Health Equity
Air Quality and Health EquityCedars Hall602 University Avenue NEMinneapolis, Minnesota 55431
For a multitude of reasons, the health effects of poor air quality fall disproportionately on urban areas with lower-income residents and residents of color. While these issues are not new, a number of state and local initiatives will influence how we address air quality and its relationship to health moving forward.
Participants in this forum will explore a diverse set of perspectives on what would need to be done in order to address air quality and its effects on health equity in Minnesota.
