The U.S Environmental Protection Agency conducted an outstanding training session on community air monitoring earlier this week, on Thursday, July 9.

In just one day, Ron Williams and his amazing EPA Office of Research and Development emerging technologies team hosted demonstrations of small, low cost air monitoring sensors, six excellent presentations, seven rotating breakout sessions, presentations of story boards by student participants, and more.
Leticia DeCaigny also represented the Kansas City KS Argentine/Turner Good Neighbor Committee
For those not able to attend, the presentations (listed below) were shared through a webinar, and will be available online in a week or so. I will share links to them on this blog as soon as they are posted.
Another great feature of the meeting was a “round-robin” of breakout sessions, structure so groups moved from one session to the other. We learned a lot!
I could not imagine learning more from a one day training session, not only from the amazing EPA scientists and others who shared their knowledge, but from my fellow students. It was a wonderful event.
Kudos to Ron Williams and Amanda Kaufman of the EPA Office of Research and Development, and the rest of the talented team that make this event so successful.
