The Planning Committee on the Indoor Exposure to Fine Particulate Matter and Practical Mitigation Approaches Workshop is conducting a three-webinar series on the state-of the-science on exposure to fine particulate matter (PM2.5) indoors, its health impacts, and engineering approaches and interventions to reduce exposure risks, including practical mitigation solutions in residential settings. The webinars will take place on April 14, 21, and 28.

The April 21 webinar— Indoor Exposure to Particulate Matter: Health, Metrics, and Assessment —features presentations from leading indoor environment experts on

  • the overall health burden of indoor PM2.5 exposure;
  • pulmonary disease associated with fine particulate matter exposure in indoor environments and disparities in economically-challenged communities;
  • the health effects of indoor exposure to particulate matter from wildfire smoke and other outdoor pollution events;
  • the technical complexities of indoor fine particulate matter measurement, exposure, and control;
  • the challenge of moving from the measurement of fine indoor particulate matter to evaluating occupant exposure; and
  • the utility, use, and misuse of low-cost consumer indoor particulate matter sensors

The speakers will also participate in roundtable discussions, and address questions posed by online participants.
