Interventions to address particle pollution & heart disease (part A)
Thursday, January 12, 2023, 11:00 AM until 12:00 PM
Climate change poses a significant risk to cardiovascular health. Ppoor air quality due to particle pollution or extreme heat can increase the risk of cardiovascular events like heart attack and stroke, particularly in people already at risk for these conditions. The Million Hearts® Climate Change and Cardiovascular Disease Collaborative (CCC), in partnership with the HHS Office of Climate Change and Health Equity (OCCHE), the CDC National Center for Environmental Health and the Environmental Protection Agency, is a national forum for health professionals and organizations looking to deepen their knowledge about the cardiovascular health threats like air pollution and extreme heat events present, offer evidence-based interventions to address those threats (especially for high-risk populations) and provide opportunities to test and refine relevant solutions and tools.
