Research Summary

My research activities as a clinician and educator in occupational and environmental medicine have revolved largely around workplace exposures and occupational illnesses of healthcare workers. In particular I have sought to apply a scholarly approach to developing national guidance for healthcare worker safety, and to teaching medical center-based occupational health practice. Leadership in this endeavor has been fostered by my work with the CDC which straddles an interface of medical center occupational health and infection control. In addition, I have pursued a separate and secondary agenda addressing cancers associated with occupational and environmental exposures.
