The Mid Atlantic Environmental Hygiene Resource Center (MEHRC) was founded in
1992 as a program of the University Science Center, a Pennsylvania science and
technology corporation owned by 28 colleges, universities and academic centers
from three states. Financial and technical supports were provided by the USEPA
and the US Public Health Service Division of Federal Occupational Health. MEHRC
was the brainchild of Mr. Francis Dougherty of USEPA Region III and Dr. Chin
Yang, currently President of P&K Microbiology Services and Chief Technical
Officer of Aerotech P&K.
Due to a change in focus, the University Science Center asked P&K to assume
coordination of the training programs in November, 2004. One of the main tenets
of the transfer was to maintain the original MERHC mission. That mission was to
provide the best available expertise of the people in the indoor environmental
quality industry to promote independent, scientifically based, objective
training courses in the field. P&K remains committed to upholding that promise.
MEHRC is a self supporting group based on fees charged from our courses. Our
instructors are leading, practicing IAQ professionals-recognized leaders in the
industry-with a wealth of technical and scientific expertise solving IAQ
problems. We offer 1 to 5 day short courses for which we provide certificates
of training, often offering Continuing Education credits from recognized,
scientifically based IAQ professional associations.
