Programme and speakers

It is critical for practitioners of occupational and environmental health to be able to see their work within the context of disparate, yet inter-related themes: the key historical figures that contributed to the development of the field, the technologic changes that have led to an ever-shifting burden of disease, and the socio-political forces that helped set the priorities of the discipline. It is no less crucial for historians with interest in occupational or environmental disease to have a forum in which they can interact with clinicians in this field, the better to put their historical work into the context of current realities.
