Homage to Richard

At the spring 2009 conference, NCEHSA paid homage to Richard Dideriksen.

Richard initialized and led North Carolina’s state of practice for Environmental Health Specialists. Against the odds and certainly with a very limited budget, Richard navigated through the bureaucracy to provide quality training across the state. New courses, updated courses and classic courses were made available…each course with it’s own flavorful speakers.

For many years, his work and dedication to the profession produced remarkable results. The EHS profession acquired a national known and recognized program of training through UNC-CH. Many courses, many hours of continuing education and many milestones.

Richard set the bar high throughout the years. Many thanks Richard!!
