Dr. Glenn Talaska is the 2013 Peter A. Breysse Memorial Lecturer.
About the Lectureship: The Peter A. Breysse Memorial Lectureship was established by the Breysse family and friends in honor of Peter Breysse, Associate Professor Emeritus in the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences to recognize his dedication to worker and public health. Peter Breysse was one of the department's founding faculty members, and he was instrumental in the development of the industrial hygiene program. Active nationally and in local professional communities, Breysse was a tireless advocate for improving people's health. He is credited with populating the ranks of industrial hygienists throughout the country. The endowed lectureship enables the department to recruit national and international speakers to share new ideas and inspire faculty, staff, and students to continue his legacy.
