Research Day with WVU School of Public Health and National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health

In partnership with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, the WVU School of Public Health is excited to showcase the collaborative work of students, faculty and staff. The half-day event will feature a keynote presentation, collaborative demonstrations and poster presentations from researchers, faculty and students focused on occupational health. The keynote presentation, “Building Bridges for Worker Health: NIOSH and Public Health Collaborations,” will be delivered by Senior Scientist Officer Leslie MacDonald of the NIOSH Division of Field Studies and Engineering.

MacDonald conducts occupational health research focused on evaluating associations between physical and social conditions at work and chronic disease among employed populations, including older workers and pregnant individuals. Her presentation will address work as a social determinant of health, describe how workplace settings can be important venues for health protection and health promotion, and provide examples of research collaborations with NIH-funded public health researchers to generate new knowledge addressing the role of work in the occurrence and pattern of chronic disease among working aged adults in the United States, such as cardiovascular disease, musculoskeletal disorders and adverse pregnancy outcomes.

Attendees must register to attend Research Day by March 22.
