Dr. Caban-Martinez’s interdisciplinary program of research aims to conduct robust occupational and environmental health surveillance activities and provide rigorous scientific evidence about effective ways to reduce musculoskeletal disorders and improve the well-being of worker populations. I focus on finding ways to promote safe work practices, healthy behaviors and healthy work environments. I am especially concerned about redressing disparities in musculoskeletal disorder risk, whether by race/ethnicity, gender or occupation.
