The National Institute for Health Care Management (NIHCM) Foundation is hosting a webinar on environmental health and COVID-19. Researchers in the US have suggested air pollution has significantly worsened the COVID-19 pandemic and potentially led to more deaths than if pollution-free skies were the norm. This webinar will explore how different neighborhoods in the same city can have vastly different air quality and what that means for their residents’ short- and long-term health outcomes.
