The Buffalo West Side Environmental Defense Fund will present a forum on the health impacts of commercial trucks crossing the Peace Bridge Plaza at 7 p.m. Wednesday in Lafayette Avenue Presbyterian Church, 875 Elmwood Ave. at Lafayette Avenue.
“It’s a Matter of Life and Breath” will feature a presentation by the Columbus Park Association, a short film and a talk by Dr. Jamson Lwebuga Mukasa, a pulmonologist and epidemiologist who will discuss both how diesel exhaust effects developing lungs of children, and how it is blown by the prevailing winds deep into the West Side.
The event is free. For more information, go to
