Webinar: Climate change and health: The spread of insect-borne and water-borne disease
August 28, 2013
New date: This webinar has been rescheduled for Wednesday, August 28, 2013.
Time: 7:30 pm EDT
It's time to bring out the bug spray. As summer temperatures rise, so does the threat from vector-borne diseases. Vectors are insects and other carriers that transmit diseases, and the diseases they carry -- such as malaria, West Nile virus and Lyme disease -- thrive under the conditions associated with climate change, such as rising temperatures and heavy precipitation. Waterborne diseases are also an increasing threat, as flood events become more frequent and contaminate water sources. Learn more during the next webinar in our Climate Change & Health series.
