This image was created in 2013, by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Association of Schools & Programs of Public Health (ASPPH), Informatics Fellow, Veronica Burkel, M.P.H., and was one of the entries in the 2015 CDC Connects, Public Health in Action Photo Contest.
Additional Information:
As described by Ms. Burkel, “This photo depicts the love and labor involved in collecting data in the field, as National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), Biological Lab Technician, John Clark, demonstrates the methodology, and force involved in performing a spirometry test, which he demonstrated for each study subject. A spirometer measures lung volume and function, when a study participant expires as much air as possible. This is an important reflection of lung health, especially because NIOSH is interested to know if carbon nanotube, or nanofiber exposure at the workplace, is associated with lung function.”
