Time: 7:30 AM - 4:00 PM

Location: UVA Darden School of Business, Charlottesville, VA

The primary goals for this one-day conference center on helping health care providers gain a deeper understanding of the relationships between a changing climate and human health. Climate change is leading to an increase in intensity and frequency of extreme weather and weather-related disasters, changes in air and water quality, and changes in the distribution of vector-borne illnesses. The effect of these changes on selected health conditions will be reviewed. By gaining a deeper understanding of these changes, health care professionals will be better prepared to address population health needs in the face of a changing climate. Opportunities for health care professionals to become more involved with addressing climate-related policy will be discussed.
