BC Lung Association - Effect Modification of Prenatal Exposure to Ambient Air Pollution and Childhood Asthma Incidence

Topics: Air, Children's Environmental Health, Indoor Air, Outdoor Air Location: General, Canada

Prenatal exposure to ambient air pollution has been associated with development of childhood asthma, however, less is known regarding the potential modifying factors in this association. This presentation will go through the literature on this issue and will present findings from a retrospective cohort study conducted in Ontario, Canada. This study examined effect modification by maternal asthma, as well as infant sex, birth outcomes and maternal place of residence in the association between prenatal exposure to ambient air pollution and development of childhood asthma.

Join the air quality and health professionals, in conjunction with BC Lung Association and Health Canada, for a free webinar on the effect modifiers associated with prenatal exposure to ambient air pollution and development of childhood asthma. The main objectives of this webinar are to:

  • Raise awareness regarding the impacts of air pollution among pregnant women with and without asthma.
  • Provide insights in the mechanistic association linking prenatal exposure to outdoor air pollution on childhood asthma development.
