Wildfires are becoming more frequent and severe. They generate large amounts of air pollution and have devastating effects on the communities that they set ablaze. Wildfires pose serious threats to physical and mental health and have far-reaching public health implications. The “Wildfires & Our Health” education series of infographics aims to raise awareness of the broad range of health effects of wildfires and offer advice for what people can do to protect themselves from wildfire smoke.

This project is led by UCSF medical students Raj Fadadu and Serena Appignani Blacklow with support from faculty members Drs. Arianne Teherani and Katherine Gundling.

Physicians for Social Responsibility

Physicians for Social Responsibility and San Francisco Bay Physicians for Social Responsibility have created fact sheets and brochures on how to reduce your risk from gas stove pollution. Gas stoves produce dangerous amounts of air pollutants, including nitrous oxides (NOx), carbon monoxide (CO), and particulate matter (PM), that often exceed outdoor ambient air standards. These pollutants can have lasting and damaging effects on the human body.
