University of North Texas Assistant Professor of Biology Amie Lund is available for interviews to discuss possible health impacts of air pollution during the hottest days of summer. Lund researches how air pollution and other environmental stressors can trigger heart attacks and strokes, and how air pollutants impact blood and vascular cells in the body.
