On behalf of the organizing committee, we have the pleasure to announce the 2011 Summer Institute on Climate Information for Public Health. The Summer Institute will be run by the International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI), in partnership with the Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN) and the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University.
This two-week training course offers professionals who play a research role in operational public health decision-making the opportunity to learn practical methods for integrating climate knowledge and information into health decision-making processes through expert lectures, special seminars, focused discussions and practical exercises.
The Summer Institute will be held at the Earth Institute, Columbia University, Lamont Campus located in Palisades, New York, USA between May 16 and May 27, 2011. Due to the limited number of participants (12), it is recommended that applications are sent as early as possible. The application deadline is February 11, 2011 and only online applications will be accepted. Early application is recommended.
We encourage you to spread the word about the 2011 Summer Institute to friends and colleagues who might be interested in our course. More information available from
