MSHR free seminar 


Dr Fay Johnston presents ‘Is smoke really bad for you? Air pollution research through the ages’, on Monday 20 March, 12pm to 1pm.

Humans have been exposed to air pollution, worrying about its health consequences and suing each other over unwanted emissions for millennia.

It is only in the last 50 years that we have really begun to understand and quantify the associated harm. This seminar will present the differing approaches to air pollution epidemiology in a historical context.

Dr Johnston is a PhD student at the Menzies School of Health Research, Adjunct Research Fellow at the School for Environmental Research, and Adjunct Senior Lecturer, Clinical School, FUSA.

This presentation takes place in the Menzies Seminar Room, John Mathews Building, Royal Darwin Hospital campus.
