Applications are now being accepted for the* 2015 NCAR/CDC Workshop on
Climate and Health*. This workshop will focus on vector-borne  diseases
related to human health. The focus will be on a wide variety of vector-
borne diseases, including dengue, Lyme, and plague, and their relationship
to climate  variability and change. 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 the complex area of climate and health. The 4-day
 workshop will include lectures on relevant topics in climate and climate
change and in public health and human health, vulnerability studies,
modeling climate and health, and  special tools for analysis (e.g., GIS).
There will be multiple opportunities for discussions with experts in the
field in order to bring public health practitioners and climate scientists
 together to examine the integration of epidemiology, ecology, behavioral
science, modeling and atmospheric science.

*Dates:  July 13-16, 2015 | NCAR Foothills Laboratory, Boulder, Colorado*

*Applications accepted through April 30.*

*Participants will be notified in early May.*
