"Reducing the Health Impacts of Air Pollution: Measures, Models, and Policy"Perry Hystad, PhD. School of
Population and Public Health, University of British Columbia. Dr. Hystad'ss research interests include environmental epidemiology, spatial exposure assessment, air pollution and interactions between
social and environmental health determinants. An accomplished researcher, his doctoral thesis investigated the spatial epidemiology of lung cancer in Canada in relationship to air pollution and the
social context of neighborhoods. This was one of the largest air pollution and lung cancer studied to date using a Canadian population case-control study. He has also conducted spatial exposure
assessments and epidemiological analyses for other physical and social factors including radon, greenness, walkability, community belonging, and neighborhood deprivation.
