Greetings Workplace Health Without Borders supporters, and Happy New Year. We are pleased to invite you to WHWB's first webinar of 2024,
Cancer Risk Among Firefighters
June 7 & 21, and July 12, 2023
Tuesday, January 16, 2024 at 7:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time
This international Webinar will introduce the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) report on cancer risk among firefighters that was released in the summer of 2023. We urge everyone interested in this issue to review the IARC Monograph Volume 132 — IARC Publications Website – Occupational Exposure as a Firefighter.
We are delighted to have Dr. Paul Demers, Director of the Occupational Cancer Research Centre in Toronto Canada who chaired the IARC panel, Dr. Deborah Glass from Monash University in Australia who has been one of the leading epidemiology investigators on this topic, and Dr. Kenny Fent, CIH from the (U.S.) National Institute for Occupational Safety & Health (NIOSH) who is coordinating a new national firefighters tumor registry.
Dr. David Goldsmith from George Washington University will be the host.
