The Southeast Regional Research Symposium is a collaboration between the NIOSH ERCs and Agricultural Centers in Kentucky, Florida, North Carolina, and Alabama.
The purpose of the meeting is to bring emerging researchers from across the region together to share results, spark ideas and encourage collaboration.
This year, 2023, will be our 6th symposium. The event will be held in-person at the Marshall Student Center in Tampa, FL. The event will be streamed live. Virtual attendees will have the opportunity to interact with the in-person audience and ask questions in real time.
The goal of the Southeastern States Occupational Health Network (SouthON) collaborative working meetings over the next three years will be to continue to build upon the foundation we have established for regional occupational health surveillance (OHS) capacity and research in the 12-state Southeastern US region (Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia).
The objectives of our annual SouthON meetings are to:
1) develop common priorities for OHS epidemiological analyses, and worksite interventions;
2) build collaborations with other occupational epidemiologists, NIOSH, academic colleagues, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), worker organizations, and other OHS partners;
3) provide epidemiology and program planning tools for OHS capacity building; and
4) promote scientific collaboration among OHS partners in the Southeast region
