The PNW Climate Science Conference annually brings together more than 250 researchers and practitioners from around the region to discuss scientific results, challenges, and solutions related to the impacts of climate on people, natural resources, and infrastructure in the Pacific Northwest.

 It is the region's premier opportunity for a cross-disciplinary exchange of knowledge and ideas about regional climate, climate impacts, and climate adaptation science and practice. The conference also provides a forum for presenting emerging policy and management goals, objectives, and information needs related to regional climate impacts and adaptation. Conference participants include policy- and decision-makers, resource managers, and scientists from academia, public agencies, sovereign tribal nations, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector. Emphasis is on talks that are comprehensible to a wide audience on topics of broad interest.

Early registration deadline is August 20.

Early childhood and K-12 education do more than give children information. They foster relationships and instill knowledge that are powerful drivers of future health. Former State Health Officer Maxine Hayes, high school teacher and Kent School District Curriculum Coordinator Gita Krishnaswamy, and Representative Ruth Kagi will discuss why education is a public health issue and how it is more important now than ever.

This is the first in a series on Public Health issues presented by the UW School of Public Health and Town Hall, to foster discussion and encourage people to think broadly about the different dimensions of public health.

Admission $5.

Health professionals are finding that animals and humans alike experience health problems related to changes in the global environment, and that sharing information between human health care providers and veterinarians can create new awareness of the importance of healthy environments for all species. Examples include the rise of obesity in both humans and pets (and what grizzly bears can teach us about obesity), as well as endocrine-disrupting chemicals and their effect on sexual development in children as well as wildlife.

Experts in human and animal health will share clinical cases of environmentally induced disease in different species. They will discuss how to use these overlaps to better detect and prevent environmental health problems in the future. This evening discussion precedes the "zoobiquity" conference on Sat., Nov. 1, sponsored by the UW School of Public Health, the UW School of Medicine, the Paul G. Allen School for Global Animal Health, the WSU College of Veterinary Medicine, and the Woodland Park Zoo.

This is the third in a series on Public Health issues presented by the UW School of Public Health and Town Hall to foster discussion and encourage people to think broadly about the different dimensions of public health.

$5 admission.

The Lessons Learned from Cardiovascular Epidemiology symposium celebrates Professor Richard Kronmal's 50-year career in cardiovascular epidemiology research. The focus is the design, analysis, and results from prospective cohort studies in cardiovascular epidemiology. There will be several broad thematic areas that highlight contemporary issues of relevance to translating the findings from these cohort studies to improving public health, including biomarkers, subclinical heart disease/imaging, neurology/stroke, the genetics of cardiovascular disease (CVD), statistical methods for CVD, and future directions in CVD epidemiology. The intent is that this all-day symposium will suggest future directions that can be used to improve the conduct of cardiovascular cohort studies. The symposium will be an opportunity for students, and early stage investigators to network with experienced researchers.
