This presentation will focus on using Low-Cost Air Pollution Monitors to Supplement Traditional IAQ-Best Practices in Tribal Communities. Traditional strategies for improving IAQ focuses on integration of source control, ventilation, and supplemental air cleaning/filtration. However, advances in IAQ-related science and increases in the availability of lower-cost tools like low-cost air pollutant monitors may provide methods to assess indoor air as a complement to these best practices and ways to determine appropriate actions to improve their IAQ. Session attendees are asked to engage in providing input and feedback on training that will make it most helpful to their communities.
