NIOSH director to deliver this year’s Alf Nachemson Memorial Lecture

Join us on Wednesday, November 19, 2014, for our annual Alf Nachemson Memorial Lecture, to be delivered this year by Dr. Paul Schulte, director of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH)’s Education and Information Division. Named after renowned orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Alf Nachemson, this free lecture series was established to honour his significant contribution to the use of research evidence in clinical decision-making. It has since become one of the most important networking events of the year in Ontario for policy-makers, researchers, professionals, advocates and other stakeholders in the field of work injury and disability prevention.
