Air Pollution viewed hands-on demonstrations of cookstoves
and emissions testing.

In October 2012, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) convened a Research Training Institute on Household Air Pollution on the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland. The three-day training workshop aimed to develop expertise in indoor air pollution research. Faculty experts from academia, nongovernmental organizations, NIH and other government agencies gave lectures and hands-on demonstrations of cookstoves and emissions testing to about 20 trainee scientists from the U.S. and seven developing countries.
