This session will review neurological injuries caused by exposure to air pollution starting during gestation and continuing in the developing child, including structural brain abnormalities, neurocognitive deficits, early neurodegenerative changes similar to those seen in Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease, and autism spectrum disorders. It will provide information about strategies for educating and counseling parents, particularly expectant mothers, to reduce their exposure to these air pollutants. Faculty will discuss the impact of indoor air pollution on the pulmonary system and asthma control and interventions that have a positive impact on asthma prevention and control.
