PERC-med Recognizes Charlotte Halverson’s Retirement
Davis, California – The Pesticide Educational Resources Collaborative–Medical (PERC-med) would like to recognize Charlotte Halverson, BSN, for her commitment to PERC-med as a member of the Advisory Board. Halverson has been on the PERC-med board since 2019 and is retiring from the Advisory Board and as the Clinical Director at the Agrisafe Network.
“We are grateful to Charlotte for advancing the mission of PERC-med,” said Diana R. Simmes, MPH, PERC-med’s Pesticide Medical Education Director. “She has tirelessly worked at the intersection of educators, researchers, producers, farm and ranch workers, and families. Her contributions in the public health space, in agriculture, and in helping reduce health disparities are profound.”
PERC-med is the Pesticide Educational Resources Collaborative for Medical Professionals, a 5-year cooperative agreement (#X-83935901) between the U.S. EPA's Office of Pesticide Programs and University of California Davis Office of Continuing and Professional Education, in collaboration with Oregon State University. The primary goal of this project is to widely promote and market pesticide-related health resources and education to medical providers across the U.S. to help them prevent, recognize, and treat pesticide-related health conditions.
