April 7, 2022 | Catawba College

CleanAIRE NC’s annual NC BREATHE Conference brings together a diverse group of North Carolina stakeholders to learn about current issues at the intersection of health, equity, and climate change and, using sound science, make recommendations to decision-makers aimed at protecting those most vulnerable to the health impacts of climate change.

Call for Poster Abstracts

The in-person NC BREATHE 2022 conference will host a student poster session, and the top three abstracts will be selected for oral presentations to elevate the innovative research being done by young investigators. We are soliciting research abstracts on environmental justice, health disparities, climate change, and related public policy topics. Abstracts need not directly relate to all the conference themes, but we do encourage researchers to consider how their work may intersect with them. For any abstract-related questions or comments, please email us at [email protected]
