The deadline for the M. Donald Whorton Writing Award has been extended until Wednesday, March 29, 2017.

The M. Donald Whorton Writing Award is offered by the Northern California Center for Occupational and Environmental Health. The award program strives to honor the late Dr. Whorton by encouraging and recognizing important new voices in occupational and environmental research.
