To further global safety and health through the life
cycle of nanotechnology associated with development of advanced materials and
manufacturing by providing AIHA members and technical committee
representatives with opportunities to identify, organize, and conduct
information sharing, educational activities, and community outreach.
AIHce planning (e.g. podium sessions, round tables, professional development courses, NTWG brochure, student poster judges)
Communications & Outreach (e.g. fact sheet development, Synergist articles, Good Nano Guide support, education outreach to other AIHA committees and local sections, presenting at various conferences and symposiums outside of AIHA, and fostering input to the development of national and international standards)
NTWG Strategies (e.g. long-term strategic planning, future AIHce offerings, leadership development)
2006, 2008 – 2012, Outstanding Volunteer Group
