IOWA CITY, Iowa -- An occupational health symposium will be Thursday and Friday, March 25-26 at the Iowa Memorial Union on the University of Iowa campus.

This symposium is for health care providers, safety professionals and administrators interested in issues affecting the health and safety of workers. It provides participants with up-to-date information on clinical, industrial, agricultural and legal issues in the workplace.
