“The Impact of Climate Change on Infectious Diseases”


After much thought and discussion regarding the precautions that Washington University is putting into place due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we have decided to postpone this event until spring 2021.

These precautions have been designed with input from the University’s COVID-19 response team, which includes leaders from across the university, including, importantly, infectious disease experts at the School of Medicine. Visit the WashU Information page to learn more. 


How does the health of our environment affect your health?

Catastrophic events, human migration and disease transmission are on the rise because of climate change.

Learn from national and local experts about these issues and what you can do to address them at the 8th Annual Global Health and Infectious Disease Conference, hosted by the WashU Institute for Public Health Global Health Center.

Registration requested, but not required to attend.
