The American Lung Association named 2019 the Year of Air Pollution and Health to celebrate progress in reducing pollution in the air we breathe and highlight remaining obstacles to healthy air for all. Each month, they 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.
