Aloha, Hawaii is calling you...

This year's Western Occupational Health Conference (WOHC) will be held in Maui, HI, September 13-16, 2017.

WOHC is the annual meeting of the Western Occupational and Environmental Association (WOEMA). Founded in 1941, WOEMA is dedicated to fostering members in the profession and practice of occupational and environmental medicine and to enhance their efforts to promote and improve health in the workplace and the community.

Among ​WOEMA's ​core ​commitments ​is ​support ​of ​continuing ​medical ​education. ​WOHC is ​widely ​respected ​as ​one ​of ​the ​premier ​national ​meetings ​available ​to ​OEM ​practitioners ​and ​focuses ​on ​this ​complex ​and ​evolving ​field.

"...WOHC remains as relevant and important to me today as when I first began my OEM career. It is where the heart and soul of our OEM community gathers in a dynamic, engaging, and accessible setting where we learn from one another, challenge and debate on issues, and where we make lifelong relationships that we carry throughout our careers."  ~ Phil Harber, MD, MPH, FCCP, FACOEM,  Professor of Public Health, Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health, Interim Medical Director for Occupational Health, University of Arizona

The mission of the Western Occupational and Environmental Medical Association (WOEMA), and of the Western Occupational Health Conference (WOHC), is to promote and protect the health of people at work and in their environment through preventive service, clinical care, research, and evaluation. The WOEMA Board of Directors and the Committee on Education of WOEMA believe that continuing medical education (CME) is necessary to achieve the Society’s mission. The specific mission of the CME unit is to provide educational activities that work to enhance the professional capabilities of occupational and environmental medicine health care providers, and promote their life-long learning.

WOEMA members are committed to assuring a safe work place, minimizing worker injury and illness, and serving as leaders, educators, collaborators and facilitators in preventing and resolving marketplace health problems. We value focus on both preventive medicine as well as expeditious and effective management of illness and injury.
