September 29, 2021 @ 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm
Lynsey Greenwood
Organised by the LongITools project, this forum aims to bridge the gaps between science, citizens and policy by ensuring effective dialogue and exchange of information between policy stakeholders and researchers.
This forum will provide an overview of the LongITools exposome research in this area and enable stakeholders to develop relationships and to share knowledge and best practice. It will specifically focus on air pollution and its effects across the life-course. The agenda will include short presentations by Dr Kevin Cromar, a Director of the Health, Environment and Policy Program at the Marron Institute of Urban Management at New York University and an Associate Professor of Environmental Medicine and Population Health at New York University Grossman School of Medicine, and Dr Bénédicte Jacquemin a Researcher at Inserm, a public research organization in France and LongITools partner, working at the Research Institute for Environmental and Occupational Health. The presentations will cover the challenges of air pollution and the research being undertaken by LongITools. An informal discussion will then follow, looking at air pollution at a local level.
Aimed at local government health and environment policymakers, European and national policy research organisations, intermediaries such as patient participation groups, and citizens, the benefits of attending include an opportunity to network and engage with other policy and research stakeholders, and share knowledge and best practice.
