La importancia de tener un purificador de aire- The importance of having an air purifier- Veronica’s story

The Farmworker women & Respiratory Exposure to Smoke from Swamp Cooler Air (FRESSCA–Mujeres) project is a collaboration with the Public Health Institute (PHI), the University of California San Francisco (UCSF), the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), and the Central California Environmental Justice Network (CCEJN) to assess exposures to air pollutants among 50 female agricultural workers in Fresno, Kern, and Kings counties. Communities where FRESSCA-Mujeres participants reside are highly impacted by air pollution, including fine particulate matter (PM2.5).

Partnering with the StoryCenter, participants shared their experience of living with air pollution and its impact on their health. In this video, Veronica Lopez describes the impact of having an air cleaner on her son’s asthma.
