The first panelist will describe the work of the Manhattan clinic for the Mount Sinai Selikoff Centers for Occupational Health, a World Trade Center Health Program and Clinical Center of Excellence, whose work is based on the work-related exposures of first responders in the US 9/11 terrorist attack of the World Trade Center. The second panelist will focus on how to design and implement effective health programs for a vastly diverse population, across ASEAN countries, from the design of the program facilitates to the creation of preventative interventions to decrease morbidity and absenteeism, with the ultimate goal of these programs to increase morale and productivity. Finally, the expense and complexity of conducting research in occupational health requires that we remain open to emerging methods, such as social media, that can be both informative and cost effective within an organization, across a country and across the globe.
