Assessing Climate Driven Zoonotic Disease Risk in Washington State

EarthLab Innovation Grants, 2019


April 13, 2021 | 12:30 – 1:30 p.m. Pacific Time | Online

Weather and climate can impact the range and magnitude of zoonotic diseases. Because of this, there is a growing need to both analyze the impacts of climate on infectious disease ecology and provide public health and environmental professionals, as well as the public, with local, quantitative data that can be used to inform policy and planning. In this study, we analyzed the relationship between weather variables and four zoonotic diseases in the state of Washington, with a particular focus on West Nile virus.

Join us to learn about how this team collaborated across disciplines to study important climate-related health implications for our state.

Presented by: Cory Morin, clinical assistant professor, Department of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences, Nicolas A. Bond, Washington state climatologist, and Karin Bumbaco, assistant state climatologist
