Occupational & Environmental Medicine Portfolio 

"On several counts ... military medicine is a unique brand of occupational medicine, one that deals with the prevention and treatment of diseases and injuries resulting from work in military occupations and military operational environments."   - Llewellyn J. Legters & Craig H. Llewellyn*

The Occupational & Environmental Medicine Portfolio provides commanders, policy makers, and medical leadership with information products and consultative services that reduce adverse health impacts to Warfighters and Department of the Army personnel.  We specifically address auditory, visual, and occupational and environmental health hazards to include those resulting from unique military operations and certain chemical, biological, radiological, and toxic industrial chemical hazards.  We provide training to military medical personnel deploying into theaters of operation in support of occupational and environmental health objectives or in support of broader preventive medicine requirements.
