Interview with Dr. Patrick Breysse - Program Director/ Master of Science in Public Health (MSPH) in Occupational Environmental H

Previously, I had a conversation with Carla Reinhard, Program Administrator about this MSPH program. Now we have an audience with Dr. Breyssee, the Program Director.

Profit & Industry Compromise Scientific Bias

This is the theory put forth by Daniel Sarewitz, and he zeroes in on Biomedicine as the chief culprit.

Occupational and Environmental Hygiene Program

The other day, my friend Carla Reinhard and I were chatting about the academic degree program she administers at the School of Public Health. Her department wants to get the word out that there are a lot of great career opportunities available for graduates of their master’s program in occupational and environmental hygiene (MSPH). Essentially, students study “Industrial Hygiene” – and what, you may ask, is this?

Academic Publishing And Moola

The picture says it all, but the article almost makes you grimace at the figures. If you're aware of the Open Access movement you already know the players, the game and you won't need a scorecard.
