Forensic Chemistry Education

Our purpose is to inform chemistry faculty at community colleges and undergraduate colleges and universities about important aspects of forensic chemistry programs; accreditation, courses and internships, among others. The session will be valuable to those faculty considering initiating a program, planning one or implementing one. The session will also be of interest to practicing forensic scientists who wish to share their expertise with chemistry faculty.
