Proceedings of the third international symposium on beryllium particulates and their detection November 17-19, 2008, Albuquerque, New Mexico.
J Occup Environ Hyg 2009 Dec; 6(12):D89-D91
Health risk due to beryllium exposure is an important matter of concern in the United States and is an emergent issue globally. The symposium served as a technical forum for scientists, medical researchers, industrial hygienists, and other public health professionals to share current information about detecting beryllium particles and the health risks posed by exposure to beryllium. A call for papers was disseminated internationally, and ultimately, more than two dozen abstracts were received. The format of the symposium included oral technical presentations, vendor displays, and a tutorial on surface sampling.
