August 13 2012: Meeting at the History Center–“You Are What You Breathe”

7 p.m….History Center of Traverse City, 322 Sixth Street

Air pollution became a hot topic in Traverse City with the attempt last year to approve the building of a biomass plant in our area. What do we need to know about air pollutants, and how can we protect ourselves and society as a whole? Dr. Robert Brook, associate professor of cardiovascular medicine at the University of Michigan, will present a talk entitled “You Are What You Breathe: Effect of Air Pollutants on Cardiovascular Health.”
