The OCRC and the Institute for Work & Health (IWH) co-hosted a symposium entitled “The Health Effects of Shiftwork” on April 12, 2010. The goal was to provide an overview of the research on the health effects of shiftwork, and identify key gaps.
The presentation slides from the symposium are available. More information is also available on the IWH website.
