AIHce 2007 adds exciting new programming for its Philadelphia-bound conference

FAIRFAX, VA | Posted on January 15th, 2007

AIHce has added a host of new, innovative programming to the 2007 conference schedule. Highlights planned for the conference include:

-Weekend symposia covering both nanotechnology and clandestine methamphetamine laboratories.

-A weekday science symposium addressing infectious airborne aerosols.

-Cutting-edge general session keynote speakers, including Steven Uzzell, former National Geographic photographer, on "Open Roads Open Minds: An Exploration of Creative Problem Solving," and Linda Rae Murray, MD, MPH, chief medical officer of primary care and community health at the Ambulatory and Community Health Network of Cook County, Chicago, on "Public Health in the Workplace - Sparking Tradition With Invention."

-Ask the Expert session following the Tuesday keynote speaker and a second session held by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) discussing "An Update on NIOSH Research in Nanotechnology," enabling participants to interact with speakers in a more intimate format.

-Education programming including 59 new roundtable discussions on a variety of topics and 25 new professional development courses. Topic areas will include exposure assessment strategies, avian flu, health and safety issues related to illicit drug laboratories, control banding, emergency response, and more.

-Back by popular demand, a "mock" methamphetamine laboratory set up in the expo hall to demonstrate the health and safety issues faced by first responders, law enforcement personnel, and OEHS professionals who deal with illegal drug labs and meth-contaminated properties; the "Unsolved IH Mysteries Workshop;" and lunchtime talks.

-In addition to the more than 300 exhibitors, a new photographic exhibit documenting coal community health issues over the last 60 years captured by noted photojournalist Earl Dotter and great Depression era photographer Russell Lee.

-Also new to AIHce 2007 is a technical program to satisfy every niche, a NIOSH audiology unit, an early career and student track, a certified hazard materials manager (CHMM) review course, and an undergraduate student poster session.

These top-notch programs are being offered against the backdrop of Philadelphia, a city with the greatest concentration of American history alongside modern day, big city excitement. Nearly 92% of attendees rate the educational program at AIHce as good or excellent for their professional development needs. Don't miss the best education program of 2007!
