Description

Five years after the 1st Climate and Respiratory Health Workshop held in November of 2017 at The Collider, we are reconvening to on World Asthma Day to discuss the latest challenges we confront from climate change and its residual impacts on the air we breathe and our respiratory health and well-being.  Join us online or at The Collider in Climate City, Asheville, North Carolina for a half-day workshop webinar with an audience.  

This webinar provides the benefit of convening speakers from across the country around a common topic. It will be broadcast in the Collider conference room with speakers in-person as well as remote.  Following each topic, we will host a Q&A and discussion session with input from those in-person and remote.
