Advanced Webinar: Methods in Using NASA Remote Sensing for Health Applications

MAIN ORGANIZER(S): National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

Type: Training Course Date: 01 - 15 Jun 2017 Location: Online event

Every year, environmental conditions adversely affect the health of millions of people. Environmental data can be combined with public health information to predict and monitor potentially dangerous environmental health events, such as disease outbreaks, harmful algal blooms, excessive heat, airborne allergens, and low air quality. In this advanced webinar, participants will learn how to access and apply NASA data relevant to public health. The webinar will include a presentation on tools available for evaluating the relationship between environmental conditions and health outcomes, followed by lectures on pollen dispersal and heat stress mitigation. Two homework assignments will give participants an opportunity to review and practice what they have learned during the presentations.

By the end of the training, participants will be able to:

  • Use satellite remote sensing to increase their knowledge in the environmental health research
  • Complete original homework problem dealing health and environmental satellite data
  • Identify which satellite data sources that could be used in their research

Course Format: Three, one hour sessions. Sessions will be held Thursdays, June 1, 8, and 15 at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. EDT (UTC-4)

Audience: Public health professionals and decision makers from local, state, federal, and international agencies, NGOS, and the private sector.
