My Air, My Health Challenge Webinar

  1. 1. Webinar Presentation Tuesday, June 19th 4PM ET #myair
  2. 2. On Today’s Call Denice David Kevin Jean-Luc Shaw, Balshaw, Mobbs, Neptune, PhD PhD PhD MD Challenge Manager Program Director Innovation Program Senior Vice President Manager, Europe U.S. EPA Office U.S. National of Research & Institute of Innocentive Health 2.0 Development, EnvironmentalInnovation Team Health Sciences My Air, My Health Challenge
  3. 3. Agenda for Today’s Meeting §  Introduction §  HHS/EPA Collaboration Goals §  The Potential of Integrated Air/Health Sensing §  An Overview of the My Air, My Health Challenge §  Q&A About the Challenge My Air, My Health Challenge
  4. 4. Challenge Sponsors §  U.S. Environmental Protection Agency §  U.S. Department of Health and Human Services §  National Institutes of Health, National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences §  Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT My Air, My Health Challenge
  5. 5. Collaboration Goals “Better understand and leverageconnections between environmental quality and public health” My Air, My Health Challenge
  6. 6. The Air-Health Intersection §  Many connections supported by research §  Many based on lab exposures or sensor systems without direct linkage between exposure and response §  Wearable sensors linking exposure and response can explore in more detail §  Examples §  Particulate Matter and asthma or arrythmia §  CO and cardiac function My Air, My Health Challenge
  7. 7. The Potential of Personal Sensors How can an individual How does minimize exposure vary How do everyday exposure while activities influence across vulnerable still carrying out exposure and populations, by everyday health? location, or activities? between individuals? Within the area covered What is the temporal by a single regulatory relationship between monitor, how much exposure and exposure variation exists? physiological response? My Air, My Health Challenge
  8. 8. Key Opportunities §  Data Integration §  Connecting, visualizing, and analyzing data across sources §  Community Engagement §  Customizing sensor combinations for local needs §  Collecting and responding to local input §  Making sensors that fit individual lifestyles My Air, My Health Challenge
  9. 9. The Future of Sensors §  Inexpensive, powerful sensors provide awareness of how your air affects your health §  Individuals and communities can: §  Track specific pollutants of concern §  Access detailed, personal, real-time air quality and health information §  Create tools that help citizens interpret and act on air and health data §  Enable individuals and health care professionals to integrate the whole environment into care decisions §  Access affordable, easy-to-use tools for change My Air, My Health Challenge
  10. 10. The Challenge “Develop innovative solutions that connect timely, location-specific air pollution data and human healthmeasurements to provide a more detailed picture of air qualitys impact on our health.” §  This is a 2-phased Challenge §  Sponsors have non-exclusive license to awarded solutions (winners retain ownership) My Air, My Health Challenge
  11. 11. Expectations & Eligibility §  Using existing sensor technologies or those currently in development. §  This challenge is open to anyone who is §  an individual or team of U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the United States. §  Representing an entity incorporated in and maintaining a primary place of business in the United States My Air, My Health Challenge
  12. 12.
