"Use of O-NET data in Evaluating Occupational Exposures and their Association with ill-health"
Dr. Meyer is Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences at the Downstate School of Public Health. He holds an MD from Cornell University Medical College and an MPH in Environmental Health from the Boston University School of Public Health. Previously he held positions in academic occupational medicine at West Virginia University, the University of Connecticut Health Center, and the SUNY-Stony Brook University School of Medicine. He also served as Lecturer in Occupational Medicine at the University of Manchester (UK), where he was engaged in national occupational surveillance programs for work-related illness.
His research focuses on reproductive hazards and risks for low birth weight and prematurity, with a focus on using administrative datasets and longitudinal surveys to evaluate occupational risk factors, the psychosocial hazards of work, and health disparities in minority populations mediated by work characteristics. He is has been the principal investigator on several grants from the CDC-NIOSH and the NICHD investigating occupational characteristics and their link to adverse pregnancy outcomes, to risk for heavy drinking and alcohol-use disorders, and to CBPR with janitorial and housekeeping personnel measuring exposures and methods of transition to the use of environmentally preferable cleaning products or “Green Cleaning”. Methodologically, his interests extend to the application of techniques of social epidemiology, longitudinal data analysis and multilevel modeling into the evaluation of work-related ill health. At Connecticut he established a consultation service in occupational and environmental reproductive hazards for working pregnant women and those concerned with exposures prior to conception.
Dr.Meyer has served on the CDC/NIOSH Study Section for Occupational Safety and Health for several years and is a member of the International Editorial Advisory Board for the journal Occupational Medicine(UK). He was president of the Association of Occupational and Environmental Clinics (AOEC) in 2004, and served on its Board for two terms. He has directed occupational medicine residency programs at both West Virginia University and UConn Schools of Medicine, and was twice chair of the OEM Residency Directors Association.
