May Chapter Meeting – Monday, May 6, 1pm

Impacts of Noise on Mental and Physical Health and Well-Being

This talk will highlight the growing number of studies that have linked noise to physiological and psychological disorders, e.g. hearing loss, stress, loss of sleep, cardiovascular disorders, learning.  These studies have validated the many complaints people make about noises from road traffic, aviation, construction and neighbors.  Furthermore, the talk will examine ways that noise impacts can be reduced: e.g., noise ordinances, quieter tools, less noisy aircraft, more respectful neighbors.

Speaker:

Arline L. Bronzaft, Ph.D.; Professor Emerita, CUNY, is a researcher, public advocate and consultant on the adverse impacts of noise on health worldwide and has been involved in working to lessen noise pollution for nearly five decades.  In New York City, she serves on the Board of GrowNYC and oversees its noise activities.  She assisted in the updating of the New York Noise Code in 2007 and is frequently quoted in The New York Times.
