Program Description

The Occupational Health Clinical Network, through its 10 regional centers, is a unique statewide effort created to diagnose and prevent occupational disease.

The conference will gather health care providers, workers, unions, worker centers and other worker advocates, and employers committed to workplace health safety.

The conference will honor the visionaries who played key roles in finding new solutions to the state's high burden of occupational disease.
