Rachel Blythe received the 2015 Tebbens Student Award from the Northern California Section of the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA-NCS). The award pays tribute to Dr. Bernard D. Tebbens, a former professor of industrial hygiene from the UC Berkeley School of Public Health.

AIHA-NCS also awarded Amee Raval the 2015 Robert T. Legge Award, which commemorates Dr. Legge’s pioneering contributions to the fields of occupational medicine and public health. Dr. Legge was a former professor of industrial hygiene and university physician at UC Berkeley.
The awards for academic excellence are presented to students from the UC Berkeley Environmental Health Sciences (EHS) programs who demonstrate an interest in the industrial hygiene profession.

Blythe completed her MPH in the Industrial Hygiene program within the Division of Environmental Health Sciences in May 2015. Recently a graduate assistant at LOHP, she begins her new career in August as an industrial hygienist at Intel in Hillsboro, Oregon. Raval is in her first year of EHS studies in the Global Health and Environment and Industrial Hygiene programs, and she will graduate in May 2016.

AIHA-NCS presented the awards to Blythe and Raval during its Student and Vendor Night held in Berkeley in March 2015.
