This program will provide investigators in occupational and environmental health with a forum for presentation of current and cutting-edge research in OEM. Presentations will be made both by established researchers and by residents in OEM training. This half-day program will allow standard research presentations of submitted abstracts and late-breaking research, discussion of current resident research, and invited presentations by established investigators; all with the objective of providing a symposium and an in-depth exploration of selected current topics in occupational and environmental health research. Panel discussion and audience questions and comments will be solicited and discussion encouraged. Residents submitting the winning abstracts for the yearly AOHC research travel stipend will be recognized. This session is sponsored by the ACOEM Academic and Residents & Recent Graduates Sections.
