Dr. Steve Shea (below) presented copies of the 2012-2013 biennial report of the Oregon Institute of Occupational Health Sciences at Oregon Health & Science University to Oregon’s Management Labor Advisory Committee (MLAC) and briefly outlined the Institute’s overall program, on September 19. Dr. Shea is Director of the Oregon Institute of Occupational Health Sciences, or Occ Health Sci. Copies of the Annual Report and other publications can be found on the Institute website.
Following Dr. Shea, Dr. Kent Anger, Associate Director for Applied Research at Occ Health Sci and Director of the Oregon Healthy Workforce Center (OHWC), a NIOSH Center of Excellence in Total Worker HealthTM, broadly outlined the dissemination strategy of the OHWC and the Institute. He asked MLAC for help in identifying candidates from management and labor to join a partnership to develop that strategy into an implementation plan that will scale throughout Oregon.
