Mississauga event to take the mystery out of air quality reports

May 12, 2018 by  

Air quality readings are often included in daily weather reports, and a Mississauga workshop is on offer that will give the public details about how they can make use of this information.

Health Canada’s Dr. Umme Akhtar will be leading the event, and he will discuss the impacts air pollution can have on the human body and the outdoor environment as a whole. He will also provide details about how to interpret air quality numbers and make the best use of this information.

Those who attend the hour long session will be able to ask any questions they might have, and while there is no fee being charged to participate, the planners have requested that anyone who is interested register ahead of time. This will be an evening event, and will run from 7:00 pm until 8:00 pm.

This learning opportunity is being brought to the community by the Mississauga Central Library. Brochure printing techniques can be used by a local printer to created pamphlets and other items that can be distributed during this sort of occasion.

The ‘Outdoor Air Pollution and Your Health’ workshop has been added to the library’s calendar for June 19. The branch where it will be held is located at 301 Burnhamthorpe Rd. W., and the Insauga website includes more information and a link to register to participate.
