2018 Heat-related Illness State of the Science Meeting

The Southeastern Coastal Center for Agricultural Health and Safety (SCCAHS) Heat Related Illness State of the Science Meeting was held on October 25-26 in St. Petersburg, Florida at The Don CeSar Hotel.

The Southeastern Coastal Center for Agricultural Health and Safety (SCCAHS) put together a slate of esteemed speakers on the topic of heat related illness, showcasing research at the intersections of heat related illness and climate change as it relates to the health and safety of outdoor workers and farmworkers, as well as athletes and military personnel. This crosscutting meeting brought together researchers from various fields to present current findings and pave the way for developing future research collaborations on these topics.

The SCCAHS Heat Related Illness State of the Science Meeting took place October 25-26 at the Don CeSar hotel in St. Petersburg, Florida, with a Heat Related Illness poster session occurring on October 25.

SCCAHS is a research and education center based at the University of Florida, whose mission is to explore and address the occupational safety and health needs of people working in agriculture, fishing, and forestry in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

This event was made possible through partnership with Sunshine Education and Research Center. Learn more about this NIOSH Education and Research Center at the University of South Florida.
