The Center’s Outreach Program strives to share information on occupational health and safety issues to other institutions, business owners, workers, minorities, youth and anyone with an interest in safety and health.
Deep South Center for OH&S is a continuing supporter of FIESTA, a celebration of the Hispanic culture in our state through art, music, food and dance. But perhaps more importantly, through funds generated at Fiesta approximately $30,000 in scholarships has been awarded to outstanding Hispanic students to help them pursue their educational careers at local colleges and universities. Our center exhibits information about our academic programs, and encourages safe work practices, by providing safety information and materials for attendees. For more information about FIESTA, please visit www.fiestahbc.com.
The Deep South ERC is pleased to be a partner with West Central Alabama AHEC program. The WCAAHEC staff works with schools to prepare disadvantaged and underrepresented students for health careers and introduce students to a wide assortment of health careers.
