Joint Session 3 Extreme Heat I: Social, Physiological, and Climatological Mechanisms Driving Health Outcomes and Connections with Indoor Environments

Tuesday, 24 January 2017: 1:30 PM-2:30 PM
Conference Center: Tahoma 5 (Washington State Convention Center )
Hosts: (Joint between the Eighth Conference on Environment and Health; and the 13th Symposium of the Urban Environment )

Developing predictive capacity for health outcomes resulting from extreme heat events requires an integrated understanding of the social, physiological, epidemiological, and climatological mechanisms that drive health outcomes for individuals and subpopulations. This session will explore the interaction of these mechanisms and the various research methods for understanding them. Research, observations, and information needs from the climate, meteorology, and epidemiology communities to support public health, emergency management, urban planners, and other professionals will be a focus of this session.
