Powell/Cohrssen Scholarship Presented to Todd Niemeier
Published October 2003
Richard Todd Niemeier, second-year graduate student in the Department
of Environmental Health, received the 2003 Powell/Cohrssen Industrial
Hygiene Scholarship. The Powell/Cohrssen scholarship was established in
1989 by the late Charles H. Powell, the first ScD graduate of the
program (1959), and his wife, Barbara Cohrssen Powell, also a graduate
of the program, to benefit industrial hygiene students at UC. Many
other alumni and friends have contributed to the scholarship fund.
Niemeier received his bachelor's degree in Biology in 2002 and
bachelor's in Psychology in 1979 from UC. He is currently working
toward a master's in environmental and industrial hygiene at UC. The
graduate program in industrial hygiene prepares individuals with the
skills, scientific knowledge and expertise to anticipate, identify,
evaluate and control health hazards and causes of discomfort in the
workplace and other environments.
