Why You Should Attend WOHC!

“Year in and year out, consistently the preeminent occupational medicine conference.  The best speakers, the best topics and the best venues. I wouldn’t miss it!” – Craig Conlon, MD, PhD

“Attending the WOHC conference is a great way to learn, see old friends, and make many new friends. I always find it most enjoyable and recommend it to my Occupational Medicine colleagues.” – Roman Kownacki, MD, MPH, FACOEM

“Since time is my most valuable commodity, I select my CME wisely. The fact that I have chosen WOHC as one of my two courses for 7 out of the 8 years speaks volumes to quality, camaraderie, content, and convenience. Hope to see you! – Bill Lewis, MD

“Although WOHC is a regional conference, the educational content has a global impact. WOHC provides the opportunity to expand one’s fund of knowledge through interaction with faculty and the global diversity of attendees both during the sessions, in the hallways between sessions, and after hours at the signature dinner event. And it’s fun!” – Ramon Terrazas, MD, MPH, FACOEM

“The Western Occupational Health Conference (WOHC) has developed into one of the best general occupational health conferences held each year in the United States, with a mix of regional, national, and international attendees. The scientific program is outstanding, and there is an extensive and unrivalled social program for accompanying persons.  WOHC is always well worth attending.”

“A conference benefits both Occ Med and Non Occ Med trained providers with the most current evidence-based findings, knowledge and skills in occupational and environmental medicine.  A conference provides opportunities to renew or expand your professional network.  A conference beyond expectations!” – Hong Zhang, MD, MPH, MS, FACOEM
