Northwest Participant and Clinical Interactions Network
Annual Meeting 2022
Climate Change Impacts on Health
The Northwest Participant and Clinical Interactions (NW PCI) Network is a collaboration of regional translational research hubs located across the five-state WWAMI (Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, Idaho) region. This Network connects diverse populations to local, high-quality clinical research by building research partnerships between investigators, clinicians and clinical organizations. Through these partnerships, patients can participate in and benefit from research studies near their homes, and clinicians and health care administrators can collaborate on research studies with minimal interruptions to clinical operations and facilitate research conducted in real-world health care settings.Learn More About the NW PCI Network
The focus of our meeting this year is the impact of climate change on health. Plan to spend the day as both a learner and a teacher. We want to know how you, your organization, patients and communities have been impacted by climate change and learn about strategies to lessen health detriments. Populations that experience health disparities are particularly vulnerable to climate change, and our goal for this meeting is to find ways to work together to help the people in our communities.
We are dedicated to the safety and health of everyone involved with our meeting, so will meet virtually. Please encourage your colleagues and research participants in studies at your organization to join us. All are welcome. Please take a few moments to complete the registration form below. After you register, you will receive communications from our team about the agenda, virtual attendance and meeting materials.
