Friday, May 12, 2017, 8:30 AM to 4 PM

David Brower Center
2150 Allston Way, Berkeley, CA 94704

This course is presented by the Center for Occupational and Environmental Health (COEH). The focus of the symposium is Particulate Matter (PM) exposure and cardiovascular disease (CVD) outcomes, including clinical and subclinical markers as well as mortality. It is designed to provide occupational and environmental health professionals with a synthesis of the current research on PM exposure and CVD outcomes.

Objectives
