Air pollution continues to dominate my Beijing community’s conversations since January’s “airpocalypse”, and I continue to receive many requests for community talks and education.  I think one of the better forums is a March 21st panel discussion sponsored by the American Chamber of Commerce, called Air Pollution and Health: What You Can Do to Minimize Risk. Here’s the AmCham website link to the event, along with registration information. I will be on the panel along with a representative from the CDC as well as from PureLiving China. Reserve your ticket soon, this will be popular! Here’s more information:

Air Pollution and Health: What You Can Do to Minimize Risk

Air pollution has become a major public health concern in China. With Beijing’s air quality index recently hitting dangerous levels, residents are paying particular attention to the health impacts of pollution.

As part of its continuing China and the Environment Series, AmCham China is pleased to invite you to a panel discussion on pollution-related impacts on health. Dr. George Conway, public health attaché, US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, US Embassy in Beijing; Dr. Richard Saint Cyr, physician at Beijing United Family Hospital, and Louie Cheng, founder of PureLiving China, will discuss what can be done to minimize health risks.
