Goldenhar Named to NIOSH Committee
Linda Goldenhar, PhD, assistant dean of medical education and associate professor of family medicine, has been appointed to the review committee of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Construction Program. The program is one of eight sectors that NIOSH is targeting through the National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA), which works to stimulate new research and improve workplace practices. The review team will evaluate the construction program’s relevancy to real workplace safety and health problems, how science contributes to health and safety outcomes for workers and the extent to which the program is adequately positioned to deal with emerging health and safety issues. The committee will meet over the course of a year and ultimately provide a report to NIOSH to help guide its future work. For more information, visit www.cdc.gov/niosh/topics/construction.
