November meeting features new research on diesel emissions from mines

Our November meeting will feature Dale Stephenson, Ph.D., CIH, Program Director of BSU Environmental and Occupational Health, on “Characterization of Exposure to Diesel Particulate Matter in an Underground Metal Mine.” Underground miners experience amongst the highest exposures of any occupation to diesel particulate matter, which has been linked to many adverse health conditions. Dale will discuss his team’s research that used real time and time-integrated sampling methods to evaluate environmental and occupational exposure in an underground metal mine.

When: Tuesday, November 18, 11:30 am–1:00
Where: Washington Group Plaza Executive Dining Room, 720 Park Blvd, Boise.
