Risk Communication

The best way to reduce health risks from environmental exposures is to reduce emissions at the source. However, risk communication and personal interventions can supplement these efforts, using quantitative approaches that reflect the best available scientific evidence and rigorously evaluating them. Dr. Cromar and his team have led this field for many years, producing a health-based air-quality index used in Mexico City and a global forecast tool for daily respiratory health risks of outdoor air pollution.
