Every year we commemorate Clean Air Day to raise awareness of how important good air quality is to our health, our environment, and the economy.
Wildfires are a growing threat to public health and safety. We have seen bigger and hotter wildfires in recent years. Wildfire smoke can irritate your lungs, affect your immune system, and make you prone to lung infection, including COVID-19.
This year we invited two fo BC’s top environment health experts to outline the steps you need to take in order to protect your health during wildfire season.
Dr. Sarah Henderson, Sr. Environmental Health Scientist, BC Centre for Disease Control & Associate Professor, School of Population & Public Health, UBC
Dr. Michael Brauer, Professor/Global Expert, Occupational and Environmental Health, UBC
