Public Health and Animal Production

Wednesday, Apr. 9, 2014 5:17 pm

Matt Nonnenmann, assistant professor of occupational and environmental health, University of Iowa, is on campus Monday, April 14 for two events:

4:15 p.m., Noyce Science Center, Room 1021

Roundtable about graduate study in the health professions at the University of Iowa and careers in those fields.

7:30 p.m., ARH, Room 102

Public lecture on “Public Health Implications of Animal Production – Global to Local.”

Both events are open to the public.

Matt Nonnenmann received by B.S. in biology from St. Ambrose University, Davenport, Iowa, and his M.S. and Ph.D. in occupational and environmental health at the University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa. 

Nonnenmann has published research characterizing and controlling occupational exposures in agriculture that place workers at risk for chronic illness. His recent work has focused on inhalation exposure assessment techniques for aerosolized respiratory virus among health care providers, the use of molecular biology to characterize biological exposures. 

Nonnenmann‘s research interests also include controlling dust in animal production facilities (e.g., poultry, dairy, and swine) and characterizing environmental exposures to farm families and children.
