Making the Connection: What’s really causing your allergies and sinusitis?
June 4, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT
Discover the links between allergies and air pollution.
Join Pittsburgh based researchers as they discuss the links between black carbon and particle pollution to symptoms of upper airway disease, including allergies and sinusitis.
Doctors Stella Lee and Leila Mady, both of UPMC’s Department of Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery, will present their findings on this topic. Dr. Albert Presto of CMU’s Center for Atmospheric Particle Studies joins the panel to discuss the Center’s programs that assist the community in understanding how air pollution circulates throughout Pittsburgh and its neighborhoods.
This event is part of GASP’s Making the Connection series, intended for medical professionals as well as community members interested in learning more about the links between air pollution and various health problems. It will begin with an hour of networking and refreshments from 5pm-6pm outside of the Hutchinson and Hayashi Auditorium, before moving into the auditorium for the main program. Walk in registration is welcomed.
