Air pollution and health

It was an honour to work with this panel of leading experts, to produce Every breath we take: The lifelong impact of air pollution, a landmark report from the Royal College of Physicians. My role was to make this scientific material accessible to the public, the media and policy makers. I advised on the artwork and key messages, and wrote summaries to express these messages in clear and powerful English.
