New Student Local Section Off to Impressive Start
In just over a year since the University of Cincinnati Student Local Section was established, the group has made great strides to connect with the IH community and promote the profession on the UC campus. The local section has created its own quarterly
newsletter, The Direct Read; coordinated an annual networking dinner with local industrial hygienists; attended Ohio Valley Local Section meetings; and organized a trip
to the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. The members also plan on attending AIHce 2010 in
“I am confident we will continue to keep the ball rolling now that a solid foundation
has been laid for future years,” says UC Student Local Section President Heather
This year, the local section is planning joint activities with the UC student sections
of the American Association for Aerosols Research (AAAR) and the NIOSH Education
and Research Center (ERC), and with the industrial hygiene students of Wright-Patterson
Air Force Base. Educational outreach, career-building events, fundraising and competing for Student Local Section of the Year are also on the horizon.
