Emerging Diseases Due to Climate Change

In a Changing World, we are already seeing the emergence and re-emergence of vector-borne diseases. Join us for conversations with key responders to the problem of emerging diseases in the United States. Attendees will have the opportunity to work on designing and brainstorming interventional programs with the opportunity to extend into a part-time project or co-op education opportunity.

Goal: Learn about disease vectors and how climate change is affecting disease geography.

Outcome: Turn your connection into a project or co-op with our workshop leaders!
