EOH Latest Newsletter: Grants for Studying Diarrheal Diseases and Auto Workers' Kidney Health, DC City Council Testimony on Air Quality, New Publications, and More

In December 2013, Assistant Professor Jay Graham described how he will use a major new National Institute of Health grant to research infectious diseases associated with livestock, and Assistant Professor Kate Applebaum explained her study (funded by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health) on how auto workers’ exposure to metalworking fluids affects their later risk of chronic kidney disease and renal cell carcinoma. New publications from EOH department members addressed topics including antibiotic-resistant E. coli, on-the-job heat exposure, and the public health implications of state health agency workforce shortages.
