Health Impacts of Air Quality Warnings

Harvard Center for Risk Analysis, Center for Health Decision Science, and Society for Risk Analysis - New England host a lecture by Jonathan Buonocore, Center for Climate, Health, and the Global Environment, HSPH.

When air quality is bad, local authorities warn residents to spend more time indoors and avoid strenuous outdoor activity. We estimate the maximum health benefits achievable if warnings were based on perfect forecasts and individuals fully adhered to the recommendations, then discuss the main determinants of our results and their implications.

Jonathan Buonocore is a Research Associate at the Center for Climate, Health, and the Global Environment at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. He works on the health benefits of carbon mitigation and on how energy and other systems interact with the environment and human health.

To access the seminar location, you must arrive before 5:00pm. This seminar is open to the public free of charge, however, pre‐registration is required. To register, please email Lucy O'Keeffe,, no later than Monday, September 10.
