All members of the McMaster University community are invited to participate through their local JHSC. A list of the campus JHSCs with contact information can be found on the Environmental and Occupational Health Support services (EOHSS) website. If you are not a member of a JHSC and wish to participate, please connect with your local committee co-chairs. For more information regarding the poster contest visit the NAOSH webpage.
