DETAILS

Coal-fired thermal power plants represent a significant source of air pollutants, especially sulfur dioxide (SO2), that has been associated with an increased risk of mortality and morbidity for respiratory and cardiovascular disease. The impact of a large coal power plant located in northen Italy, operating from 1970 to 2014 was studied. A population-based cohort study was carried out to evaluate the association between exposure of residents to atmospheric pollutants emitted by the power plant and the other main sources of pollution and the risk of mortality and hospitalization considering both cancer and non-cancer causes. Strong excesses of mortality were found for all natural causes, diseases of the circulatory, respiratory and nervous systems in both sexes, and in men for lung cancers. Results of hospitalization analysis were consistent with those of mortality. Results obtained, considering multiple sources of exposure, indicate a relevant health impact of the exposure to the studied coal power plant as well as the other main sources of air pollution. The adoption of primary prevention measures and of an environment and health surveillance programme appear urgent in a large territory. The role of the main stakeholders were considered and discussed.

DETAILS

Urban and Transport Planning Pathways to Low Carbon, Liveable and Healthy Cities Over 50% of the world´s population is living in cities and this is expected to rise to 70% over the next few decades. Cities are society’s predominant engine of innovation and wealth creation, but also main sources of pollution, and disease. Partly due to poor urban and transport planning, or the lack thereof, we have cities that are too car dominated. All the urban planning in the world seems for cars; People do not matter. This has led to high air pollution and noise levels, heat island effects and lack of green space and physical activity that are all detrimental to health. For example, a recent health impact assessment in Barcelona estimated that 20% of premature mortality was due to urban and transport related exposures. This talk will review the latest developments on urban and transport planning pathways leading to low carbon, liveable and healthy cities Electric cars and/or autonomous vehicles have been mentioned as possible solutions, but they are unlikely to be, and solutions need to be sought elsewhere. A new long term visioning of healthy urban future is needed that bring health, sustainability and livable at the forefront of urban and transport planning. Systemic approaches to the current problems and e.g. a shift away from our grey car centric cities towards cities with more public and active transportation and green space are urgently needed. Collaboration between e.g. urban and transport planners, environmentalists and public health professionals is essential to create low carbon, liveable and healthy cities.

Mark J Nieuwenhuijsen PhD is a world leading expert in environmental exposure assessment, epidemiology, and health risk/impact assessment with a strong focus and interest on healthy urban living. He is director of Urban Planning, Environment and Health and Air pollution and Urban Environment at ISGlobal, Barcelona. He is President of the International Society of Environmental Epidemiology. He has edited 3 books on Exposure Assessment and on Environmental Epidemiology, and one on Integrating human health into Urban and Transport planning, and has co-authored more than 400 papers published in peer reviewed journals and 30 book chapters. In 2018, he was awarded the ISEE John Goldsmith Award for Outstanding Contributions to Environmental Epidemiology. In both 2018 and 2019 he was among the 1% most cited scientists in the world.

Prof. Dr. John Cherrie

Heriot Watt University and the Institute of Occupational Medicine in Edinburgh, UK.

DETAILS

The "exposome" encompasses all exposures from conception to death. Developments in characterising the exposome during adult life, including work-related exposures, could play an important part in helping to discover the causes of non-communicable diseases. This presentation will briefly review practical methodologies to collect, analyse, store and interpret data on workplace and other adult exposures. Methodologies to characterise the external exposome may include wearable sensors for light, sound, sleep, physical activity level, location or environmental chemicals, and the internal exposure may be characterised using complex biochemical analysis of blood or other body fluids. These measures should be integrated into new prospective epidemiological studies.

John Cherrie is Professor of Human Health at Heriot Watt University and Principal Scientist at the Institute of Occupational Medicine (IOM) in Edinburgh, UK. He has worked on several research studies involving measurement and modelling of exposure to chemicals and other environmental hazards. John also works on air pollution research in Thailand and China and on various workplace epidemiological studies, including the HEADING study investigating brain health of former footballers. He is a member of the British Workplace Health Expert Committee and the UK Industrial Injuries Advisory Council.

SUNY Downstate Health Sciences University School of Public Health,
Department of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences

DETAILS

A large body of research on endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) that act as obesogens has been conducted since the turn of the century. Many prospective birth cohort studies have contributed to a global wealth of knowledge. Todays's overweight and obese children will become tomorrow's overweight and obese adults. What are the generational concerns, the lessons learned, and where do we go as a global society towards solving the overlapping problems of EDCs and childhood obesity?

Lori A. Hoepner, DrPH, MPH is Assistant Professor of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences at SUNY Downstate School of Public Health. With over 50 co-authored publications, her research is primarily at the intersection of environmental effects and prenatal/early childhood development. She has extensive research experience in common urban exposures (air pollution, pesticides, plasticizers) and health outcomes (obesity, asthma, neurodevelopment, and HIV/AIDS), with a focus on childhood. Additionally, she is experienced in large-scale digital integration of public health data from multiple sources. With her background in health disparities research, Dr. Hoepner has the goal of understanding the intricacies of race/ethnicity, sex and socioeconomics as they pertain to environmental health from a global perspective, as well as from a community-wide perspective.

Venue, Travel and Accommodation

Conference Venue

The conference will be held at University of Naples Federico II - Naples, Italy.

How to get there:

In Naples, you can revisit the history and development of the city by means of itineraries from the very first settlements, passing through places with testify to the past, but which only occasionally show clear signs of events while more often tending to stimulate the imagination.

The starting-point is Partenope, which was founded about 3,000 years ago, and the point of arrival the new city, Neapolis, the real historical centre and heart of the modern metropolis. As we go along the roads that have become part of Partenopean history and culture, we discover archeological and sites and examples of art which are unique. The cult of the dead, which so much typifies the culture of the Neapolitans, comes alive in the mysterious scenario of the Necropolis of the Sanità. Approaching the hill of Posillipo, our journey ends with an itinerary which leaves us enchanted by the extraordinary beauty of the natural scenery which the ancient Romans learned to love.

Naples has a very important cultural and historical heritage, a fantastic cooking, an international airport in the city center and, in the near surroundings, you can find several important sites, such as Pompei and Vesuvius, Ercolano, Capri, Ischia, Procida, Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi, Pozzuoli and Phlegrean Fields with the Solfatara crater etc.

Accommodation

In the area of the Conference (University of Naples Federico II - Naples) there are many hotels, shown in the map here below; please consider that Naples is a touristic city and the area of the Conference is one of most renowned; therefore it is highly advisable to make the reservation quite in advance.
