Today, Tuesday November 28th, is #GivingTuesday, a day where millions of people come together to support and champion the causes they believe in.

New Pages: Asthma and Water Quality

CHE is excited to share that two more pages have been added this week: Asthma and Water Quality. The asthma page summarizes the science linking asthma to various environmental causes including air pollution, climate change, and community stressors. The Water Quality page lays out what health impacts have been associated with various water contaminants according to recent science. Both pages touch on tips for prevention.
