In the summer of 1983, a special project was held working alongside the local United Furniture Workers Union. Students with the Coalition and Student Environmental Health Project from Vanderbilt’s Center for Health Services hosted a 2-day health fair for union members and their families, during which health and safety surveys were conducted at three different factories in Memphis, Tenn. They primarily focused on conditions related to factory work, such as problems related to repetitive motion like carpal tunnel syndrome.
