Holiday air quality concerns

The holidays are coming up, and while there is plenty to celebrate, there are concerns about air quality. Worsening air quality during this time of year is certainly a concern for those with respiratory diseases such as asthma, and to help the situation the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality is starting its “Give the Gift of Clean Air” campaign during the Thanksgiving weekend. We’re joined by Dr. Matthew Pace, an ADEQ meteorologist, about what causes the air quality issues over the holiday season in the Valley. We also hear from Dr. Rebecca Sunenshine from Maricopa County Public Health, who will speak about the health impacts of bad air quality issues and the data they have researched related to these impacts.
