HEI’s expert panelto review the literature on traffic-related air pollution and health has published its review protocol(pdf). The panel was appointed in 2018 by HEI’s Board of Directors following the publication of HEI’s well-cited 2010 critical review.
In May, HEI President Dan Greenbaum was invited to address the Gilbert W. Beebe Symposium of the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine on “The Future of Low-Dose Radiation Research in the United States.”
HEI has released Communication 19, which evaluates the contribution of household air pollution to ambient fine particle air pollution in Ghana and the impact on health using analyses conducted in the country. It also identifies strategic opportunities to address air pollution and source apportionment of air pollutants in Ghana and other low- and middle-income countries.
