Conference History

The late 1980s were punctuated by an annual series of one-day regional seminars on developing an occupational health program.
During these years, regional seminars were conducted in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Washington, Raleigh, Atlanta, Fort Lauderdale, Tampa, Nashville, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati, Detroit, Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas City, New Orleans, Houston, Dallas, Minneapolis, Denver, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Anaheim/Newport Beach.
