Progress Reports

Year:   2018  2017 

Since October 2017, the team met many times, in various groups. On December 4, 2017, a full-day, annual, face-to-face meeting with the advisory board was held at LSUHSC-NO. The meeting consisted of strategic planning and a review of the programmatic and marketing plans for the upcoming year. On December 8, 2017, the group presented a poster at the NIEHS/SRP Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

On March 26, 2018, Kari Brisolara, Sc.D., MSPH, and her team completed its first in person workshop at Louisiana Emerging Technology Center on the campus of Louisiana State University. The workshop was titled "E-waste and the Electronics Industry." Participants at the workshop learned about the potential exposures associated with the electronics industry, especially heavy metals. By the end of the workshop, participants were able to assess and quantify exposures specific to the electronics industry. They also walked away with knowledge on the emerging issues with the industry and certification programs.

The program's website is now complete and is the primary vehicle by which the team communicates information to the public including allowing for registration and downloading supplemental materials related to the workshop topics. On July 30, 2018, the group presented a poster at the IPE Nexus Summit, Minneapolis, Minnesota.
