AIHA to Host Online Forum on Nanotechnology

March 22, 2005
Nanotechnology will be the first topic featured in a new series of online emerging issues forums being launched by the Fairfax, Va.-based American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA).

The forums will discuss the latest trends and issues that may impact the industrial hygiene and occupational and environmental health and safety profession.

The first online seminar in the series, "Nanotechnology," will be held from 2 to 3 p.m. (EST) on April 20. The forum will define nanotechnology and discuss its impact on the occupational and environmental health and safety profession. It also will provide an overview of standards and guidelines that are being developed and current AIHA involvement and activities related to nanotechnology.

Presenters at the nanotechnology forum will include:

  • Mary Ann Latko, CIH, CSP, QEP, director of scientific and technical initiatives with AIHA
  • Margie Breida, M.S., senior manager of technical and standards committees with AIHA
  • Peter Raynor, Ph.D., assistant professor at the University of Minnesota and the chair of the AIHA Aerosol Technology Committee
  • John A. Volckens, assistant professor, environmental and radiological health sciences, Colorado State University and member of the AIHA Aerosol Technology Committee.

The forum will be free to the first 75 AIHA members and will cost $50 for any additional members wishing to attend who are registered by April 6. Non-members registered prior to April 6 will pay a fee of $75. After the early registration deadline, tuition will be $75 for members and $100 for non-members.

Every site registered will receive materials prepared by the course presenter, which may be duplicated for each participant. Participants need Internet access and a telephone, or just a phone, to be part of this live, online forum.
