The Southwest Drought and Human Health Workshop was tailored around sharing regional drought-related human health impacts, and the workshop helped identify gaps and needs, collaborative opportunities, and ways to integrate the health sector into the Intermountain West DEWS. NIDIS co-hosted the Drought and Human Health Workshop with the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC), and the University of Arizona Center for Climate Adaptation Science and Solutions. The audience of this workshop was state and local public health departments, climate scientists, emergency managers, tribal communities, and healthcare providers.
