Innovation on tap

Nearly 100 students, faculty and staff in the UW Department of Environmental & Occupational Health Sciences (DEOHS) got a crash course in community-based research this week during our fall kick-off event featuring research partnerships from every corner of Washington state.

Caring for the animal caretakers

Veterinary workers, farm animal handlers, aquaculture workers and others who work closely with animals are at high risk for on-the-job injuries and illnesses.

Celebrating excellence

Seven students and staff members from the UW Department of Environmental & Occupational Health Sciences (DEOHS) were recognized Friday at an annual awards celebration held by the UW School of Public Health.

Their contributions range from investigating the health effects of climate change to advocating for women in trades to the development of a new tool to monitor air pollution.

Watch for profiles of many of these award winners on our blog in coming weeks.
