Location: 55 University Avenue, 15th floor, Legal Clinics boardroom C1/C2. Details attached. NO CHARGE BUT PLEASE REGISTER THROUGH EVENTBRITE.

– Tuesday, September 17, 7 – 9 pm – THE OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY MOVEMENT IN KOREA: HISTORY AND LESSONS LEARNED – this will be a presentation by Dr. Jeong-ok Kong, a very committed occupational physician and activist, on the impressive work done by the health and safety movement in Korea, what has been accomplished and what remains to be done.
