Join us to learn more about how air pollution is impacting our local communities, and how an energy transition can protect our health.

Panelists:

T. Stephen Jones, MD, MPH, is a public health consultant epidemiologist who retired from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2003. As a volunteer of the Massachusetts chapter of the Sierra Club, he has worked with local Massachusetts boards of health on the human health risks of "natural" / methane gas use and infrastructure. He and Andee Krasner have been advocating public health action on the link between cooking with a gas stove and asthma among children living in the home.
