The 2013 NCAR Workshop on Climate and Health will focus on two related
atmospheric hazards, the individual and combined effects of extreme heat
and air pollution on human health. The purpose of the workshop is to
train graduate students, postdocs, and early career scientists/faculty
on how to develop robust interdisciplinary research projects in the
complex area of climate and health. The 4 day workshop will take place
from 9-12 July 2013 and will include lectures on relevant topics in
climate and climate change and in public health and human health,
vulnerability studies, urban studies, statistics, and special tools for
analysis (e.g., GIS or NCAR model output datasets). In addition, a few
successful research projects will be highlighted, providing detailed
analyses of the methods and components of the projects that led to their
success. There also will be multiple opportunities to engage public
health practitioners and climate scientists to discuss the integration
of epidemiology, ecology, behavioral science, modeling and atmospheric
science.

Applications can be submitted though the ‘Application’ tab on the
website. The due date for the completed application is May 15, 2013.
Between 20 and 25 applicants will be selected to attend the workshop.
Graduate students, postdocs and early career scientists/faculty are
encouraged to apply. Full and partial travel support will be available
for some participants and can be requested in the application.

allow us to support more applicants. All applicants will be notified of
the decision by the end of May. All applicants must fill out an
