AIHce Encourages You to Get on Your IH Soapbox

One of the new features of AIHce 2010 encourages attendees to sound off on industrial hygiene topics in an open, fast-paced, public format. Called "Soap Box Talks," the event will be held on Monday, May 24, in the Expo Theater, Hall F, from 2:30 - 4 p.m. Show organizers say the setup is designed for anyone who has "an idea that's novel, untested, or 'far-out' (in the eyes of some)" or who want "to communicate a perspective that could be characterized as controversial, or even unpopular" or even those who "simply have a great technique or work approach you'd like to share."

Participants will have five minutes to literally get up on their soapbox and make a presentation and then another five minutes for Q&A or discussion with the audience. Organizers say only that the focus of the idea presented should be related to the IH profession--and that the time limit will be strictly enforced by the moderator.

Representatives from the U.S. Army Public Health Command in Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md., and Westat in Steamboat Springs, Colo., will facilitate the event.
