AIHA’s Safety Committee honored Kathryn Crawford, a PhD candidate in the Department of Occupational and Environmental Health at the University of Iowa, with this year’s Best Student Poster Award at AIHce EXP 2019. The committee presents this award annually to recognize the best student poster at the conference based on a topic related to safety. Crawford, the 2019 award recipient, received a ribbon and an honorarium for her poster, “Evaluation of Hearing Protection Device Effectiveness for Musicians.” This poster was selected by a panel of judges based on its quality and connection to both safety and industrial hygiene.

The Noise Committee also selected Crawford’s poster as best in show. She placed Best in Show/2nd Place Silver overall.
