White House: Evidence Forum on Air Quality and Environmental Health

The Evidence Forums:
Evidence of Inequities: Leveraging Air Pollution Research Advancements for Environment Health Policy Decisions

As part of the White House Year of Evidence for Action, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), in collaboration with the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and the Health Effects Institute, invite you to join the next Evidence Forum.

The event will showcase how researchers can ensure their work is relevant and useful for policy decisions around air pollution exposure and health inequities. New and emerging air pollution monitoring, modeling, and remote-sensing technologies are rapidly becoming available. There are expanding opportunities for researchers to work directly with communities to conduct impactful work that informs policy actions and addresses environmental injustices at all levels of government.

The program will highlight the work of researchers who are actively applying air quality science and technology data and tools to environmental justice policy questions. Following these presentations, there will be a panel discussion with agency and community leaders, who have been applying air quality research in decision making, on effectively leveraging these innovative research activities for environmental justice policy decisions.
