February 11, 2020: Air Pollution and Population Growth Seminar with Neal Fann
Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health
Kresge Building, Room G2
677 Huntington Avenue, Boston MA 02115

The benefits of improved air quality are often expressed as deaths averted in a single year, which obscures the impact on population longevity and risks over-counting the number of attributable deaths. In this seminar, Neal Fann (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency) will illustrate an alternative approach that uses a life table model, relying on data from the U.S. and Chile. The seminar will be held from 4:00 to 5:00 pm at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, in Kresge G-2. Registration is needed to access the building; please contact Christine Bell ( to sign-up.
