Public health faculty and students attend ultrafine-particle conference

Loma Linda University School of Public Health was represented at an international conference on ultrafine particles in Los Angeles, held April 30 through May 2 at Wilshire Grand Hotel. The conference was organized by the South Coast Air Quality Management District, and its theme was ultrafine particles—the science, technology and policy issues.

There were paper presentations on the health effects of ultrafine particles, their abundance in the environment, for instance along roadways, and their concomitant effects in lung diseases, irritation in asthma patients, and as potential carcinogens.

The conference emphasized the importance of effective policy in striving toward better air quality.
