John D Meyer, MD
- PROFESSOR | Environmental Medicine & Public Health
John Meyer, MD, MPH, is Professor and Director of the Occupational Medicine Residency Program in the Department of Environmental Medicine and Public Health, and practices at the Selikoff Centers for Occupational Health at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. An NIH BIRCWH Scholar from 2003-5, Dr. Meyer continues research focusing on reproductive hazards and risks for low birth weight and prematurity, using administrative datasets and longitudinal surveys to evaluate occupational risk factors, the psychosocial hazards of work, and health disparities in minority populations that may be mediated by work. Dr. Meyer’s methodological interests are in techniques of social epidemiology, longitudinal data analysis and multilevel modeling in the evaluation of work-related ill health. Other areas of research in which he have been involved include studies in indoor air and building environmental quality, and in the epidemiology of upper extremity disorders.
Previously, Dr. Meyer was Lecturer in Occupational Medicine at the University of Manchester (UK), Chief of the Section of Occupation and Environmental Health at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine, consulting medical director to the Connecticut Department of Transportation and Chair of the Connecticut Medical Examining Board for Disability Retirement. At UConn he established a consultation service in occupational and environmental reproductive hazards for working pregnant women and those concerned with exposures prior to conception, developing guidance documents for pregnant women and their medical caregivers on reproductive hazards at work, including the nail salon and beauty industry.
Dr. Meyer received his MD from the Cornell University Medical College in NYC, and his MPH in environmental health from the Boston University School of Public Health, and completed residency training in occupational medicine at the Boston University Medical Center in Massachusetts.
