Traffic-related Air Pollution, Noise and Infant Mortality in London

23 August, 2018

Dr Rachel B. Smith will be presenting a poster titled 'Traffic related Air Pollution, Noise and Infant Mortality in London' at the ISEE-ISES Joint Annual Meeting in Ottawa, Canada, 26th - 30th August 2018.

ii)Cause-specific infant mortality

iii)Stratification by birth outcomes, e.g. low birth weight / preterm
