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.
