Chapter Meeting – Wednesday, May 1st, 2024

Take My Breath Away: Air Quality and the Environment

Dr. Barry S. Lachman, MD, MPH

Ozone, cement batch plants, and Shingle Mountain are all headline topics about air quality in Dallas. The quality of air that we breathe and, consequently, our health depends on the neighborhoods where we live, especially for children. Exposure to particulate matter in polluted air can contribute to lung and heart disease. A national leader in urban asthma research, Dr. Barry Lachman, will discuss how research results and community involvement can impact policy to improve health disparities in Dallas.

Dr. Lachman is a nationally recognized leader in healthcare for the underserved. He has over 50 years of experience providing care, program development administration, and advocacy for underserved populations, including 19 years as Medical Director of Parkland Community Health Plan. He is nationally recognized for his leadership in managing asthma and preterm birth prevention. His present work focuses on social determinants, the environment, and equity. He currently serves as a member of the Dallas Environmental Commission, representing City Council District 12
