About this event

Join us for a conversation with folks from the Community Assessment of Freeway Exposure and Health Study (CAFEH) on the health risks of highway pollution.

We’ll sit down with Lydia Lowe of the Chinatown Community Land Trust, Doug Brugge of the University of Connecticut School of Medicine, and Ellin Reisner of the Somerville Transportation Equity Partnership to discuss their community-based participatory research (CBPR) air pollution studies. We’ll also take a look at maps from our collection that document the local history of freeway construction during the mid-twentieth century.

This talk is virtual, free, open to the public, and will feature a Q&A session with our speakers.

This talk is part of our Continued Conversations series in conjunction with our current environmental justice exhibition, More or Less in Common: Environment and Justice in the Human Landscape.
