AAOHN Hosts Mold Webcast

The American Association of Occupational Health Nurses has recently announced that it is hosting a one hour webcast, titled "The Mold Crisis: An Update on Current Thoughts and Practices," conducted by René R. Salazar, Ph.D., CIH, on Wednesday, Aug. 15, 2007 at 2 p.m. EST. Participants will receive 1.0 CNE credit.

The purpose of the webcast is to offer an industrial hygiene approach to recognizing and evaluating mold problems of non-industrial, indoor environments. The presentation will discuss scientifically-sound methods of assessing mold problems, common methods of characterizing potential exposures to individuals, and generally recommended remedial response strategies. AAOHN says participants will learn the basic characteristics of mold elements, their ecological benefits, and how they have come to be perceived as hazardous agents.

Salazar holds an undergraduate degree in microbiology, and masters and doctorate degrees in Public Health from the University of South Florida, College of Public Health.

Questions posed to faculty during the live webcast program through a chat function will be answered in the last 10 minutes of the program. Questions not answered during the broadcast will be posted with answers in the online archive.

The registration fee for AAOHN members is $50 if registering online, and $60 if registering via fax or by mail. For non-members, the registration fee is $75 if registering online, and $85 if registering via fax or by mail. There is a 3-for-2 registration offer available only to AAOHN members working for the same employer who register via fax or by mail.
