About Me

John Meyer, MD, MPH, is Director of the Division of Occupational Medicine and Professor in the Dept of Environmental Medicine and Climate Science at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Dr. Meyer is Director of the NIOSH-funded New York-New Jersey Education and Research Center (ERC),  Editor-in-Chief of the American Journal of Industrial Medicine, and a Director of the American Board of Preventive Medicine.

An NIH BIRCWH Scholar from 2003-5, Dr. Meyer continues a research and clinical focus on work-related reproductive hazards and occupational risks in pregnancy.  He practices at the Selikoff Centers for Occupational Health at Icahn Mount Sinai, with clinical interest in work hazards to pregnancy, heavy metal exposures, and asbestos disease.  His research interests also encompass 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 has been involved include studies in indoor air and building environmental quality, and in the epidemiology of upper extremity disorders.

Previous Experience
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.
