Latest Learnings on the Environmental Effects on Asthma in Baltimore

Wednesday, September 12, 2018, 12:30 - 2:00 PM

Journalism students at University of Maryland recently produced a series of articles on the asthma epidemic and housing conditions in Baltimore.  The Environmental Integrity Project also issued a new report on Asthma and Air Pollution in Baltimore

We’ll be joined by Sandy Banisky, University of Maryland Abell Professor in Baltimore Journalism and former Deputy Editor of the Baltimore Sun, Sean MussendenCapital News Service Digital Bureau Director and Lecturer in digital media, data visualization and computational journalism at the University of Maryland, and Leah Kelly, Senior Attorney with the Environmental Integrity Project who will describe their work and how new information helps develop new interventions. 

This joint session of the Green Funders and Health Funders Affinity Groups may also be relevant for funders with interests in community development and housing. Housing conditions and exposure to indoor allergens as well as industrial and vehicular air pollution all contribute to high asthma rates in Baltimore.  

This program is for Maryland Philanthropy Network members and invited guests only. Lunch will be served.
