A Flow-Based Risk Characterization Model for HABs on the Ohio River (PRESENTATION)
In August of 2015 an unprecedented harmful cyanobacteria bloom (CyanoHAB) occurred over 700 miles of the 981-mile Ohio River. The bloom threatened drinking water of 5 million people and caused five states to set advisories that lasted more than 2 months. To meet several assistanc...
Air Pollution Monitoring for Health Research and Patient Care. An Official American Thoracic Society Workshop Report (JOURNAL)
Air quality data from satellites and low-cost sensors, along with output from air quality models, have the potential to augment high quality, regulatory-grade data in countries with in situ monitoring networks and provide much needed air quality information in countries without t...
Exploring Stakeholder Perspectives at the Intersection of Air Quality Health Risk Communication and Cardiac Rehabilitation (PRESENTATION)
Introduction: There is ample epidemiological evidence of adverse cardiovascular health outcomes associated with exposure to unhealthy air. Further, cardiac rehabilitation patients are at increased risk for future adverse health events related to air quality. This study investig...
Illuminating Stakeholder Perspectives at the Intersection of Air Quality Health Risk Communication and Cardiac Rehabilitation (JOURNAL)
There is ample evidence of adverse cardiovascular health outcomes associated with exposure to air pollution and cardiac rehabilitation patients are at increased risk for future adverse health events related to air quality. Risk communication and health messaging about recommended...
Integrating Air Quality into Cardiovascular Care: Exploring Communication Between Patients and Providers (SUMMARY)
This project is part of a growing body of research about air quality, cardiovascular health, and strategies to mitigate adverse health effects associated with poor air quality. Understanding the knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs among cardiac rehab stakeholders advances public he...
Stakeholder engagement in environmental risk assessment (PRESENTATION)
Active engagement with stakeholders can improve the value of risk assessments for environmental decision making by addressing three interrelated issues: transparency, objectivity, and communication. Stakeholders should be involved in risk assessments throughout the entire process...
Using low cost PM sensors to monitor wildfire smoke in remote locations (PRESENTATION)
Recent increases in the frequency and severity of wildfires have led to greater risk of smoke exposure to communities in the Western U.S. The current approach to wildfire smoke risk communication is typically dependent on the Air Quality Index (AQI) based on a stationary regulato...

Advancing Collaborative Solutions by Understanding Community Experiences and Responses around Wildland Fire Smoke (PRESENTATION)
Increasingly, scholars across disciplines are working directly with the public to address issues in complex problem domains through research designed to advance knowledge but also bring about meaningful change in those areas. From an environmental public health perspective, this ...
Performance testing of next generation air sensors during wildfires (PRESENTATION)
Recent increases in the frequency and severity of wildfires have led to increased smoke exposure in communities within western states. The current approach to wildfire smoke risk communication is often limited by the relative sparsity of existing regulatory monitoring networks in...
Reframing Future Risks of Extreme Heat in the United States (JOURNAL)
We present locationā€specific projections of extreme heat risk, in terms of both frequency and intensity, based on global average temperature increases of 1.5, 2, 3, and 4 °C above a preindustrial baseline. To more accurately reflect individuals' past experiences, we also explore ...
US EPA Office of Research and Development’s Wildland Fire-Related Research: Finding Solutions to Protect Public Health (PRESENTATION)
The presentation will broadly describe ORD research dedicated to the study of wildfires their emissions, impacts on air quality and health effects. However, the principle focus of the presentation will be to describe the purpose and utility of the Smoke Sense smart phone app. Th...
Wildland Fire and Smoke: EPA Supported Tools and Research. Finding Solutions to Protect Public Health (PRESENTATION)
The presentation will broadly describe EPA tools and research dedicated to the protection of public health from the adverse effects of air pollution, and the study of wildfires emissions, and their impacts on air quality and health effects. However, the principle focus of the pr...

Smoke Sense Demonstration at National Academies of Science Citizen Science Expo (PRESENTATION)
Exposure to wildland fire smoke can be sudden and unexpected, last hours to weeks, and affect communities that may or may not have a public health response plan to reduce the adverse impacts of smoke exposure. EPA is continuing to advance the science and technology required to u...
Smoke Sense: Citizen Science Study on Health Risk and Health Risk Communication During Wildfire Smoke Episodes (PRESENTATION)
Why do we need to communicate smoke impacts on health? Indicence and severity of large fires are increasing. As emissions from the Wildland fires produce air pollution that adversely impacts people's health, incidence and severity of large fires are increasing. As emissions fr...
Supporting LHD Capacities in Environmental Health and Land Reuse (PRESENTATION)
Description: In this interactive session, attendees will learn about activities of the Brownfields & Reuse Opportunity Working Network’s (BROWN) Health Education Working Group. BROWN partners range from environmental professionals to public health officials to private s...
