COVID-19: Are you ready for the next normal?


Dr. Cheung Spoke at the American Occupational Health Conference 2018

Cogency’s President and founder, Dr. Cheung spoke May 2, 2018 at the American Occupational Health Conference (AOHC) in New Orleans, Louisiana. This conference, hosted by the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, sought to “evaluate current research, analyze emerging issues in OEM, and exemplify effectiveness and efficiency in carrying out professional responsibilities.” This conference is designed for physicians, industrial hygienists, nurses, safety professionals, and environmental health specialists who are interested in Occupational and Environmental Medicine.

Dr. Cheung’s presentation, a part of the Environmental Health and Risk Management track, was titled “Legionnaire’s Disease, A Re-emerging Threat to the Health of Workers, Patients, and the Public.” Although presented bright and early at 7:00 am, a large turnout actively listened to the history, epidemiology, prevalence, and testing of Legionella and Legionnaire’s Disease. The goal of the session was to allow OEM professionals to comprehend the newest advancements in Legionella research, prevention, and what to anticipate when OSHA or the CDC becomes involved in workplace-acquired Legionnaire’s cases.
