STEP and partners receive grant to study air pollution near I-93

Somerville Journal: “Somerville receives federal grant to study air pollution near I-93 homes”
“STEP is very enthusiastic to be a partner for this study,” said STEP President Ellin Reisner. “For the past year, we have worked as a community partner with Tufts University studying UFP exposure of residents in East Somerville living near I-93. This study provides our community with a critically important opportunity to identify ways to effectively reduce indoor UFP exposure which can have serious cardiovascular health consequences.”
