On August 29, 2012 at 1pm EDT, the American College of Medical Toxicology (ACMT) will be hosting a 90-minute webinar on Pesticide Residues in the Indoor Environment: Assessment and Health Effect.
Developed by Daniel Sudakin, MD, MPH, FACMT who is an Associate Professor of Environmental and Molecular Toxicology at Oregon State University in Corvallis, OR, this webinar has been developed as part of ACMT’s Cooperative Agreement with ATSDR (#U61TS000117-03).
The National IPM Webinar series is coordinated by Kelly Ivors (http://www.cals.ncsu.edu/plantpath/people/faculty/ivors/) and Steve Frank (http://ecoipm.com/people/steve-frank/) in the Departments of Plant Pathology and Entomology at North Carolina State University. The webinar series is designed to provide timely information to the green industry through monthly seminars on the production and maintenance of ornamental plants. We invite extension specialists from around the county to speak on topics (http://ecoipm.com/ipm-webinar/ipm-webinar-archive/) important to the nursery greenhouse, and landscape industry with particular emphasis on issues relevant to the Southeast. This provides an opportunity for green industry professionals to learn in-depth information from the specialists conducting research on a particular pest or horticultural issue.
