Pollen Seasonality – A Methodology to Assess the Timing of Pollen Seasons Throughout the US

Speakers:
The presenter is Arie Manangan, MA, who is a Health Scientist at CDC’s National Center for Environmental Health.

Objectives:
Outdoor allergenic pollen is one of the primary causes for seasonal allergic rhinitis, or hayfever. This presentation will focus on the assessment of pollen seasonality (onset, peak, end, length) for nine pollen stations throughout the Eastern United States and New Mexico. This webinar will feature discussions about the predominant pollen types and provide a geographic comparison of pollen season timing. The presentation will also discuss the relationship between pollen seasonality and enviro-climatic factors. By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to describe a methodology that compares pollen season timing throughout the US.
