Rob Burton grew up outside New York City, an area known for its poor air quality. Rob also has Cystic Fibrosis, a life-threatening genetic disorder that affects lung function.
When he moved to Birmingham, Ala., to be closer to family, he investigated the air quality compared with his hometown and what he discovered was shocking. Since moving to Birmingham, Rob has to have four times as many treatments as he did when he lived in New York. Reducing air pollution is a critical quality of life issue for Rob and others like him living with health conditions like Cystic Fibrosis.
Voices for Clean Air is a collaborative initiative between GASP and American Lung Association in Alabama to tell the stories of Alabamians whose lives are being affected by air pollution. Will you join Rob Burton as a Voice for Clean Air?
