On September 21, the Scientific Liaison Coalition hosted a webinar titled Dermatotoxicology: Occupational and Environmental Aspects. The webinar recording is now available for viewing via the SLC website.
Speaker: Dr. Howard Maibach, Professor of Dermatology, University of California, San Francisco and clinician at The Environmental Dermatoses Clinic, UCSF
Moderator: Robert A. Nocco, American Industrial Hygiene Association
Abstract: Dermatotoxicology, a toxicology subspecialty, addresses problems associated with skin exposure to chemicals. This webinar with Dr. Howard Maibach will review the common environmental occupational skin conditions faced by industrial hygienists, occupational physicians, general toxicologists, and allied health care workers. In addition to reviewing common conditions including dermatitis, learners will also explore exposure tools for percutaneous penetration, a passive process that can occur following skin exposure to chemicals, as a tool to understand other organ effects.
