Pivotal Interfaces of Environmental Health and Infectious Disease Research
Pivotal Interfaces of Environmental Health and Infectious Disease Research to Inform Responses to Outbreaks, Epidemics, and Pandemics - A Workshop
An emerging body of research details intersections between environment and infectious disease exposure and transmission. This workshop, organized by the Standing Committee on the Use of Emerging Science for Environmental Health Decisions, will take a population-level look and collaborative approach to this complex relationship to inform public health decision making during outbreaks, epidemics, and pandemics.
Specifically, workshop participants will investigate how emerging environmental exposure assessment tools could help identify and monitor critical pathways for exposure to infectious agents, and how recent advances in climate and environmental health modeling techniques could be applied to predict transmission dynamics and provide early warning of emerging infectious disease outbreaks.
Participants will also explore how data integration and emerging analytical tools can enable collaborations. A series of case studies on past infectious disease outbreaks, some mediated by environmental exposures, will be used to illustrate and expand on the workshop themes.
This workshop builds on the Standing Committee’s 2019 workshop, which focused on the interplay of environmental stressors, infectious disease, and human health at the individual level.
