Conference Center: Tahoma 5 (Washington State Convention Center )
Hosts: (Joint between the Eighth Conference on Environment and Health; and the Seventh Conference on Transition of Research to Operations )

This session will explore the interactions among climate change, extreme weather, and vector-borne disease transmission. It will assess research-to-operation concepts and applications that are bringing us closer to understanding how Earth's changing environment can influence the geographic range and incidence of infectious diseases, and will explore how this research can increase our preparedness capacity.
