Full Summary: The next meeting will discuss the impact of truck traffic on rural and small town air quality and health.  

The next meeting of the Healthy Places Research Group will be Tuesday, Nov. 28, at 7:30 a.m.

The topic will be, "Analyzing the Impact of Truck Traffic on Small Town and Rural Air Quality and Health."

While urban areas generally experience the most severe air pollution, many freight corridors pass through rural areas, generating air pollution in a context that receives comparatively less attention.

Research estimates truck-generated air pollution in rural Georgia and attempts to gauge the transferability of urban findings to examine health degradation due to air pollution and environmental injustice in rural Georgia. 

The featured presenter will be Fangru Wang, a Ph.D. candidate in the School of City and Regional Planning. She is also a research assistant at the Center for Quality Growth and Regional Development.

Wang's research interests center on understanding the interrelationship between transportation infrastructure, the built environment, and travel behaviors considering the impacts of emerging transportation technologies.

Breakfast and coffee will be served.
