Do we have a say when it comes to the air we breathe? Well, that depends on who you ask. Where we live, work, and play can have a large impact on the level of air pollution in our air. Lauren intends to study air quality and the health impacts associated with inhaling harmful air pollutants. Lauren also plans to investigate the effectiveness of current policy and learn how future policy can address air pollution. Ultimately, Lauren seeks to use her knowledge and research to educate the public about the relationship between air quality, health, and policy.
