Symposium Going Strong; Expo Portion Opens This Afternoon

The Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel here in Orlando is buzzing with activities surrounding the AAOHN 2007 Symposium & Expo. Some 1,700 occupational and environmental health professionals are expected--some are still arriving, others came early to take part in the pre-symposium workshops that began last weekend. The show's concurrent educational sessions began this morning, and at noon a variety of "Lunch & Learn" sessions begin, covering such diverse topics as critical incident stress, employee medical information security, workplace food safety, obesity management, and writing for publication, all in different "lunchrooms" for AAOHN members to attend.

The Expo portion of the show kicks off at 4 p.m. when the exhibit hall opening reception begins. There, attendees will be able to meet and mingle with the 80-plus exhibitors on hand showcasing their wares, which include the latest developments in scientific research, business resources, pharmaceuticals, and medical technology. If attendees don't make it to all the booths by 7 tonight, they'll have all day tomorrow to make the rounds, as well.

Also at 4 today, the symposium's poster session begins. Among this year's variegated 16 presentations are "New Hire Orientation: So Much Material, So Little Time," "Using Six Sigma to Reduce Injuries in Primate Workers," "When OSHA Comes Knocking on Your Door," and "The Care and Feeding of Truck Drivers: On the Road to a Healthier You."
