Abstract
The Midwest Center for Occupational Health and Safety, a NIOSH-supported Education and Research Center, has been in continuous operation since 1977 and serves the education and research needs of occupational safety and health professionals and workers throughout the Upper Midwest by providing degree programs, original research, continuing education and outreach, and by acting as a regional resource center for industry, labor, federal, state and local government agencies, agriculture and other interested parties. During the five-year period from July 1, 1997 through June 30, 2002 the Midwest Center continued to offer educational programs in industrial hygiene, occupational health nursing, occupational medicine, agricultural safety and health, occupational injury epidemiology and control, hazardous substance academic training, and administered a pilot research grant program for occupational safety and health in the Upper Midwest. Two new programs in occupational health research and policy (2000) and occupational injury prevention research training program (2001) were added but not under review at this time. Academic programs graduated 280 professionals within the 25 year history, 90 in the five years 7/1/97-6/30/02. Continuing education programs, including hazardous substance training and agricultural health and safety, offered a total of 461 courses that were attended by 8,858 participants. During this same five-year period, 52 new trainees were enrolled in degree programs and another 67 trainees graduated who entered their programs before July 1997. The Midwest Center's faculty and staff continued to provide outreach and service to educational institutions, professional organizations, governmental agencies, industry, and the general public throughout the region.
