For the first time, the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) formally brought together their grantees working on climate change and human health, to share their research findings and discuss practical strategies for implementing this knowledge.

“The goal of this meeting was for grantees to share latest advances, as well as for participants to network with each other to build new relationships and plant the seeds for future collaborations toward solving one of the most critical public health issues facing our world,” said Caroline Dilworth, Ph.D., NIEHS health scientist administrator.

“NIEHS would like to see more meetings like this one, to translate research to scientists in other fields, to decision-makers, and to the public,” said John Balbus, M.D., NIEHS senior advisor for public health. “We need to ensure that significant research findings are integrated into public health planning, as well as ensure that researchers are addressing the topics of greatest concern.” Read the full story on the NIH website.
