Preventing Respiratory Illness and Death Through Tighter Air Quality Standards

News
Podcast

On this episode of Managed Care Cast, a research scholar at the Marron Institute of Urban Management at New York University discusses the latest findings in the Health of the Air report, which was presented at the recent American Thoracic Society 2021 International Conference.

In the United States, the Environmental Protection Agency sets air quality standards for fine particulate matter and ozone; the American Thoracic Society (ATS) has proposed stricter standards. Lives could be saved and illness prevented if pollution levels were brought lower, the ATS says.

On this episode of Managed Care Cast, Laura Gladson, a PhD candidate at the Marron Institute of Urban Management at New York University, discusses the latest findings of the Health of the Air report, which was presented at the recent ATS 2021 International Conference.

Meeting ATS recommendations would save nearly 15,000 lives, prevent 2950 cases of lung cancer, and avert 33,000 additional illnesses, the report says.
