Workshop ChairNeal Fann and Breanna Alman

Instruct users in: (1) the basic principles of air pollution health impact assessment, including how to use information from air pollution epidemiology studies to construct health impact functions and how to interpret results correctly; (2) using the built-in health impact functions, demographic, health and air quality data from the Global Burden of Disease project to perform country-level analyses of air pollution health impacts and characterize the results; (3) using the core features of the BenMAP-CE program including the Geographic Information System, how to select health impact functions from the library and how to report both tabular results and maps.
