Air Quality, Wildfire Smoke, and Your Health

Sponsoring Program: 

The worrisome air conditions we are currently experiencing is due to smoke from wildfires in Canada spreading throughout many parts of the east coast of the United States.

Wildfires cause a large amount of smoke and pollutants to be released into the air. The smoke from wildfires can travel long distances depending on the wind.

We asked Dr. Purvi Parikh, MD, allergist and immunologist at NYU Langone and our national spokesperson, to answer important questions about air quality, wildfire smoke, and your health.
