The Oregon Healthy Workforce Center (OHWC) held it’s Partners’ Luncheon on Monday to thank our research and outreach partners from the first cycle (2011-2016) and our new partners for the 2016-2021 cycle.
Partners from 2011-2016 learned what had been accomplished in the outreach and the four research projects, and learned about others in their research project (many for the first time) and about the other research projects and outreach going on at the Center. The Partners, some of which were involved with the Center for 5 years, received plaques and the appreciation of all members of the OHWC. Publications from the first cycle are available as are tools and toolkits used in our 2011-2016 cycle on the OHWC website. The progress of the OHWC can be watched in our Center Evaluation page headed by a summary scorecard.
New Partners received certificates of recognition and our appreciation for pledging their support to participate in the OHWC research projects. Outreach partners plan to continue. Shown below is Dr. Steven Shea, Director of the Oregon Institute of Occupational Health Sciences and Dr. David Bangsberg, the founding Dean of the OHSU-PSU School of Public Health talking with Chuck Easterly of SAIF.
