2017 NCAR/CDC Workshop on Weather, Climate and Health
9:00 am – 12:30 pm MDT
The 2017 NCAR/CDC Workshop on Weather, Climate and Health will converge on both environmental health and vector-borne diseases related to human health and the uncertainty inherent in weather, climate and health systems. The purpose of the workshop is to train health professionals and early career climate and health researchers (public health officials, graduate students, post-docs and early career scientists and faculty) in the development of robust interdisciplinary research projects in this complex arena. The 3.5-day workshop will focus on adaptation strategies in key emergent areas such as early warning systems, the integration of weather and climate into surveillance systems, and community level initiatives and tools for decision-makers. There will be multiple opportunities for discussions with experts in the field in order to bring public health academicians and practitioners and atmospheric scientists together to examine the integration of epidemiology, ecology, behavioral science, modeling and atmospheric science.
