Indiana University of Pennsylvania is in the process of forming an AIHA student chapter thanks to Assistant Professor Dr. Bryan Seal, PhD., CIH, CSP, CHMM, REHS and the students in the Safety, Health, and Environmental Applied Science program.
The Pittsburgh AIHA Executive Committee is proud to support the IUP Student Chapter and have reviewed / approved their bylaws which have been submitted to the National AIHA Board of Directors for final approval.
See the LinkedIn post by Bryan Seal on the formation of the AIHA Student Chapter at Indiana University of PA -- Congratulations!!
After a few years hiatus, the WVU section of AIHA is active again! The organization is officially recognized by both AIHA and WVU Student Engagement, allowing the student group to connect students with local OEHS professionals. In addition to industrial hygiene students, the club has seen interest from industrial engineering students and hopes to host networking and educational socials for students and community members from a variety of disciplines. The organization is led by Ryan Titus (President), Emily Smith (Vice President), Sada Wright (Secretary), Cole Cantor (Treasurer), and Dr. Sergio Caporali (Faculty Advisor). WVU AIHA hopes to see some of you at one of their events sometime soon!
Ryan Titus, Chapter President
The Slippery Rock University AIHA Student Section leadership changed slightly this fall with Mr. Jacob Brand taking over President duties, while Ms. Hannah Roberts assumed the role of Vice President. They stepped up and did an outstanding job this past semester. We want to give a big thank you to outgoing President Reece Leotta for the excellent work he did for the past two years! Thank You Reece!
On October 4th, Dr. Bernardo, Dr. Smeak (Faculty Advisor), and SRU Safety Management students; Annalyse Hoover and Hannah Roberts participated in the AIHA tour of the Carrie Blast Furnace. The day was beautiful and very informative. Well done AIHA Pittsburgh Chapter!
The AIHA student section welcomed Michael McCaffrey, CIH, (pictured below) to campus in the Strain Safety Building, where he talked about his career as an Industrial Hygienist and gave students a glimpse into a day in the life of an Industrial Hygienist. Mike did an outstanding job and gave great advice to our students. Mike, thank you for your time and dedication!
The semester ended with the SRU AIHA Student Section leadership working with the ASSP SRU Student Section leadership on a research project that will be conducted upon the return for the spring semester. Dr. Bernardo, Dr. Medford, and Dr. Smeak are the faculty assisting the research project.
Lastly, the student section leadership is working on a tentative spring technical meeting with a tour of the NIOSH Center for Direct Reading and Sensor Technologies.
For a group just getting back into the groove of in-class/in-person meetings, they are doing an outstanding job at reaching out to increase student membership and participation.
