Re: APHA Call for papers - Conference in Chicago in October

I am looking for people who might be interested in submitting abstracts on Occupational Safety and Health topics to present at the APHA meeting coming up next October in Chicago Illinois.

I am on the APHA OSH planning committee and we are working to find potentially interested parties to present papers or prepare posters on OSH topics. Perhaps you and/or your colleagues would be interested in submitting abstracts. Please send this email around to whomever might be interested.

This link takes you to the call for abstracts.
