The policies that need to be implemented to reduce greenhouse gas emissions will also bring about substantial reductions in air pollution and cardiovascular disease, as well as propelling changes in urban mobility and our built environment. Looking at health co-benefits creates a different paradigm  one that is win-win for most people, and for the planet. The panel will discuss the health co-benefits of climate change policies. 

PANELISTS WILL INCLUDE:
Jeremy Hess, MD, MPH, Univ. of WA Associate Professor of Environmental & Occupational Health Sciences

Kathy Strange, P.E., M.S. Manager, Technical Analysis with Puget Sound Clean Air Agency
