Regional Summit on Air Quality and Health to Address Pollution's Toll on Pittsburgh Region
Date:4/30/2013

effects of leaded gas on children as well as the health impacts of particulate air pollution, and winner of a prestigious MacArthur “genius grant,” Dr. Schwartz will speak at 11:30 a.m. on the topic “Morbidity and Mortality Effects of Air Pollution.”

Dr. Schwartz’s innovative research on the health costs of lead in gasoline led to a ban on this dangerous additive in the 1980s. He went on to study the relationship between particle pollution and deaths in nearby Steubenville, Ohio, and found that pneumonia, lung disease and heart attack mortality rose along with levels of particulate pollution, even when those levels were within EPA standards. Dr. Schwartz’s ground breaking work has distinguished him among the most cited authors in the world in the field of air pollution research, with more than 454 peer-reviewed papers published as of July 2011, which at that time were cited more than 23,000 times in other peer-reviewed publications.

A panel of local and national experts will discuss cutting-edge work to address asthma and other air pollution-related health outcomes in our community. Topics and presenters throughout the conference will include:

  •     Epidemic of Asthma in Pittsburgh, 8:00 a.m. with Dr. Gentile
  •     Asthma Control Strategies, 8:10 a.m. with Dr. Belenky
  •     Origins of Asthma, 8:30 a.m. with Giovanni Piedimonte, MD, Chairman of the Pediatric Institute and Physician in Chief, Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital
  •     Problem Based Learning: Balancing Safety and Efficacy of Asthma Therapy, 9:30 with David P. Skoner, MD, Director, Division of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, Allegheny General Hospital.
  •     Effect of Air Pollution on Asthma Outco
