YEAR OF AIR POLLUTION & HEALTH 2019
What Is the Year of Air Pollution & Health?
We are taking a full year to celebrate progress in reducing pollution in the air we breathe and highlight remaining obstacles to healthy air for all. Each month, we will spotlight the lifesaving importance of healthy air, focusing on different themes such as how air pollution harms health, who is at risk and ways to take action to protect our communities—especially in light of the challenge of climate change.

April: "State of the Air"
The more you learn about the air you breathe, the more you can protect your health and take steps to make our air cleaner and healthier. This month, the American Lung Association released its 20th annual "State of the Air" report providing county grades and city rankings on air pollution levels across the country.
