During this reporting period, four students with traineeship support completed the requirements for degrees and seven others worked toward completing the thesis requirement. Program objectives such as the approval of the new industrial hygiene programs funds to recruit a full time faculty member were also achieved during this period. A grant was provided by the University of Puerto Rico to purchase laboratory equipment.
