"PCIH brings together professionals from various specialties to provide a unique opportunity to meet with and learn from some of the best minds in the industrial hygiene field," said Academy President John R. Mulhausen, Ph.D., CIH. "PCIH provides a forum to discuss current trends, to learn from experts, and to develop practical applications to tackle the issues OEHS professionals face daily."

Expo hours are 8 a.m.–1 p.m. and 5:30–6:30 p.m. on October 22, and 8 a.m.–Noon on October 23.
