Vijay Eyunni, MD provides greater understanding of Occupational Medicine

In an interview with the publishers of Employee Benefits and Minnesota Physician magazines, Vijay Eyunni, MD of Minnesota Occupational Health explained that ocupational medicine provides high quality medical care and injury prevention for employees and employers.

According to Dr. Eyunni, there has been a 40 percent drop in work-related injuries in the past 10 to 15 years.
