Climate Information, Meet Public Health Problems
The climate and public health fields would seem to be a match made in heaven. However, practitioners in those fields often have a hard time connecting. That’s why the International Research Institute for Climate and Society has been playing matchmaker for the past four years by putting on the Summer Institute on Climate Information for Public Health.
The Summer Institute is a two-week course designed to bring these communities closer. This year the course, organized in partnership with the Center for International Earth Science Information Network and the Mailman School of Public Health, brought together 10 professionals from around the globe. Their research interests and experience were as diverse as the places they came from. You can read about some of their stories in more detail in IRI’s latest feature story.
