WOHC/WOEMA is classified as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization by the standards of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Therefore, your donation may be tax-deductible to the extent allowed by the law.
The JEDI Committee was created to review diversity, equity, and inclusiveness across WOEMA’s membership, committees, educational offerings, and other work products and recommend and implement improvements as we move towards social reform and constructive solutions on issues of inequality.
Engaging with the world through a JEDI lens demonstrates how we value people in general. It is not only about our members feeling respected, but also about our patients feeling understood and safe.
WOEMA is active in its advocacy work to assure a healthy workforce and to follow and understand legislative and regulatory issues that affect physicians and public health. We contract with a legislative advocate in Sacramento who works with the Legislative Committee, one of the most active committees of WOEMA.
This work is instrumental to WOEMA members and our patients to participate in policy debates that lead to improved outcomes for illness, injury and disability in the work environment.
Each year, resident physicians in an accredited OEM training program are invited to WOHC to present posters on occupational and environmental medicine research or projects. The purpose of the scholarship is:
- To provide support to OEM residents to attend the Western Occupational Health Conference (WOHC).
- To develop leadership in potential candidates who show early promise through exceptional activities.
- To offer networking and enhance mentorship opportunities that might not otherwise be possible due to distance and funding availability.
