At the beginning of 2021, NASA expanded the newest version of the Health and Air Quality Applied Sciences team to 14 members composed of air quality and public health scientists across the United States. We’ve started to collaborate with public stakeholders, who help guide our research, and also created new short-term, high-impact projects in small groups called Tiger Teams.
In this public HAQAST meeting, we will rekindle partnerships through two-way dialogue in which stakeholders share their research needs and priorities, and scientists share their resources, insights, and new discoveries.
Panel discussions took place January 20 and 21. Each day featured multiple 75-minute panels beginning with 40 minutes of presentations (1o minutes per speaker) and ending with audience Q&A.
