Notice of Grant Award (1989)

In the late 1980s, a group at Hunter College led by Professor David Kotelchuck joined a New Jersey-based consortium working on hazardous materials and emergency response training. This grant award notice for that group--with $63,816 allotted to Hunter College--came from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and marked a continuation of the group's first large grant received in 1987. The award was later used to demonstrate that the future center had a secure funding stream.

Shortly thereafter, in 1990, it was officially named the Center for Occupational and Environmental Health (COEH). The group spent decades dedicating itself to promoting community and workplace health throughout the New York area. It offered courses on topics ranging from asthma to ergonomics for unions, neighborhood groups, public employees, and others.
