Dear NIOSH Total Worker HealthTM Stakeholder,
You are invited to provide input on the top priority issues to include in the Proposed National Total Worker HealthTM Agenda. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) intends to publish a National Agenda on Total Worker Health™. This agenda, which is in draft form, is meant to stimulate innovative research, practical applications, policy guidance, and capacity-building of researchers and practitioners to improve workplace practices as they relate to Total Worker Health.
Provide comments in-person at one of three town-hall sessions at either the 1st International Symposium to Advance Total Worker Health or the Healthier Federal Workers 2014 Conference.All conference participants who have registered to attend one or both of the conferences, limited only by the capacity of the conference room, are invited provide oral comments and listen in at one of the following three town-hall sessions.
