Climate Change, Aging, and Health Across the Life Course ~ 2024 Workshop

Pyle Center, 702 Langdon St., Madison, WI
@ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm

Tuesday, May 14th, 2024 @ 9:00 am – 4:30 pm, & Wednesday, May 15th @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm 

This conference is supported by funding from the Research Centers Collaborative Network of the National Institute on Aging (NIA).

This 1.5-day workshop aims to advance inquiry in climate change and health across the lifecourse. The workshop has four aims: (1) to share cutting-edge research on the effects of climate conditions on physical, mental, and cognitive health among older adults in the U.S. and Mexico—two linked, aging populations; (2) to identify the data and study design features needed to advance rigorous research on climate and aging; (3) to identify major gaps in research in climate and aging—including behavioral mechanisms of adaptation to climate change —and develop cross-Center, cross-institutional collaborations to begin addressing these gaps; and (4) to support the scholarship of early-stage investigators advancing NIA research on the effects of climate change on older adults.

The event includes an opportunity to workshop climate-related grants in development on May 15. If you would like to bring a grant in progress at any stage, email Katherine Curtis: kcurtis@ssc.wisc.edu.

Please RSVP here by April 25th, 2024.
