Children's Environmental Health Protection Monitoring. Community Health Program: Fresno, CA
|The California Air Resources Board (CARB) is conducting special studies to determine whether the current network established to measure air pollution in California adequately reflects the levels of air pollutants that infants and children are breathing.|
Fresno was chosen because of its proximity to mobile source emissions and the because of the high number of children living in the community. The Fresno school system is the 4th largest in California with over 80,000 students in 61 elementary schools, 16 middle schools, and 9 comprehensive high schools.
