Community Health Modeling Working Group
This page last reviewed February 16, 2012
The Community Health Modeling Working
Group meets to discuss modeling procedures for conducting cumulative
assessments and neighborhood-scale monitoring and
modeling. The Group consists of over 40 participants from
government agencies, universities, industry and environmental groups
and was convened as part of the ARB's Community Health Neighborhood Assessment Program
(NAP). An agenda and handouts from each meeting is provided
below. For more information, please call Mr. Tony Servin (916)
323-5122, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Community Health Modeling Working Group has evaluated the ARB's initial modeling analysis in Barrio Logan, which was used to assess the cumulative impacts of air pollution at the neighborhood-scale. The lessons learned from this study will be applied to the next generation of NAP studies, including the current modeling study in Wilmington. In the future, the methods developed in these community assessments will be used to gain a better understanding of cumulative air pollution impacts statewide.
