Advocate for better air quality protections.

Out of the 12 Wellness Trial Neighborhoods, South End (Including Chinatown) has one of the higher rates of asthma-related hospitalizations of children under 5.

You can advocate for better air quality protections by asking the EPA regional office at (888) 372-7341 and the Massachusetts DPH to study, monitor, and regulate highway and roadway pollution exposures and health. Install air filters or air conditioning in your home, which will reduce your pollution exposure.
