Hyder and May, who received MBDH Spoke awards, discussed their collaborative partnership with a local high school to utilize low-cost air quality sensors to monitor traffic-related air pollution. Environmental data from the sensor will be stored, processed, and analyzed via a cloud-computing solution. The processed data will be used for: 1) student engagement via a web-based application to display curriculum-relevant materials, 2) community engagement via a multilingual informational and educational website for residents and patients at risk for adverse outcomes due to poor air quality, and, 3) environmental exposure assessment and statistical spatiotemporal forecasting of local air quality in epidemiologic studies.
