The NMRL hosted members of the City of Pittsburgh Occupational Safety Committee on Wednesday, November 20, 2019. Our visitors included Mr. David C. Reed, City of Pittsburgh Manager of Risk Management, and Detective Dr. Patty Poloka, Pittsburgh Bureau of Police Employee Wellness & Resource Coordinator and Allegheny County CIT Coordinator. Drs. Nindl, Beals and Lovalekar presented about our legacy and current research, and plans for our proposed study among City of Pittsburgh public safety personnel, followed by a tour of the laboratory. The presentation and tours were well received by our visitors, and there was great interest in collaborating with the NMRL. We are looking forward to working with the City of Pittsburgh.
