Funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Joppa Environmental Health Project will explore the connection between exposure to particulate matter (PM) air pollution and the health of Joppa residents. This is the largest investigation of environmental health in Dallas-Fort Worth history and the first time the impacts of exposure to PM air pollution have been explored in a local neighborhood of Color. This is a community-based scientific investigation designed to answer questions Joppa residents have asked about their health and pollution burdens. Investigations like this can lead to changes in zoning or pollution controls and decrease exposure from harmful air pollution for everyone.
