UMass Lowell Doc Student Studies Vietnamese Safety Issues

Helen Wellman's time is tight - she manages a full-time career with a global leader in the insurance industry as she pursues a doctorate in UML's Dept. of Work Environment. But Wellman doesn't just balance these responsibilities, she excels at them.

Wellman is currently working to complete her dissertation entitled "Development of a Public Health Model and Reporting of Work-Related Injuries in Vietnam." Her advisor, Prof. David Kriebel of the Dept. of Work Environment has high praise for Wellman. "Helen is one of the most hard-working and dedicated students I've ever met," he says. "Her research in Vietnam has not only led to this outstanding achievement award from her employer, but the government of Vietnam has also praised her project and announced its intentions to use the lessons learned through this research to reduce workplace injuries nationwide."
