Location: Online training/webinar
Every year, environmental conditions adversely affect the health of millions of people. Environmental data can be combined with public health information to predict and monitor potentially dangerous environmental health events, such as disease outbreaks, harmful algal blooms, excessive heat, airborne allergens, and low air quality.
In this advanced webinar, participants will learn how to access and apply NASA data relevant to public health. The webinar will include a presentation on tools available for evaluating the relationship between environmental conditions and health outcomes, followed by lectures on pollen dispersal and heat stress mitigation. Two homework assignments will give participants an opportunity to review and practice what they have learned during the presentations.
The course will have weekly, one-hour live broadcasts available twice a day at either 10:00-11:00 or 15:00-16:00 EDT (UTC-4).
