The annual University of Washington Program on Climate Change Summer Institute will take place September 13-15, 2017, in Friday Harbor, WA. The topic this summer is "Population Health and Climate Change" and is being organized by LuAnne Thompson (Ocean) and Cecilia Bitz (ATMOS). This workshop will bring together climate scientists with social and health scientists to talk about the observed and projected impacts of climate change to population health. We will be discussing the challenges that climate change brings to food and water security, human health, and population disruption.

Our current lineup of speakers is given below. We have a few more invites out to round out the schedule.
