Nurse Urges EPA To Clean Up Pollution From Cars

Roxana Chicas, an Atlanta-based nurse and educator, explains how the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) can stop people from becoming her patients. By creating robust clean car standards—which require car manufacturers to lower the amount of pollution their newly built cars emit—the EPA can clean up the air, safeguard public health, and combat the climate crisis.
