Commercial drivers, employers and even certified examiners often are not aware of recent changes in guidance and regulations in the commercial driver medical certification process. Incomplete or incorrect qualification decisions can lead to liability for the examiner and the employer, but more importantly can impact public safety. Awareness of resources to identify current best practice is essential. Join nationally renowned author and speaker Dr. Natalie Hartenbaum for a “lunch and learn” on updates and changes, both current and upcoming. This presentation is a must for commercial drivers, their employers, safety professionals and NRCME certified clinicians. CME credit will be provided.

Dr. Hartenbaum is President and Chief Medical Officer of OccuMedix, Inc, an occupational medicine consulting firm located in Dresher, PA. She has extensive experience in the clinical, corporate, and academic settings and is a nationally recognized expert in occupational fitness for duty with a special focus on transportation. She is the editor of The DOT Medical Examination: A Guide to Commercial Driver Medical Certification, now in its fifth edition and CDME Review, a quarterly newsletter for commercial driver medical examiners. She has published and lectured nationally on various issues of fitness evaluations in the workplace and is the course director for ACOEM’s National Registry of the Certified Medical Examiner training program.
