Welcome to the CSOEMA website! Our Central States Occupational and Environmental Medicine Association is the large ACOEM component which actively serves our 400+ members from the seven central states: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, and Wisconsin.

We maintain our longstanding commitment to offer a variety of quality programs, with educational seminars that are proactive as well as responsive to the requests and needs of our diverse members. No other component or section is better represented in the House of Delegates, and we’re also active in so many other ACOEM leadership roles, from the Officers to the Board to the Council of Scientific Advisors. There is no doubt that however you look at our group, we are Central!

This is an exciting time for occupational and environmental medicine, as our parent organization has begun its second century. Here in the heartland, the Central States, we are fortunate to be surrounded by so many experienced and supportive colleagues, dedicated to the health of workers and our environment. We know what it takes to be practical, while continually improving our knowledge and skills as medicine evolves and progresses. Many of you have noticed the ongoing improvements to our website, and we will continue to update our technical features.

I invite you to let me know if there are ways for us to make our group even better for you, and I thank you for your support!”
