Cardno ChemRisk and Elite Medical Experts Partner to integrate university physicians into health risk assessment practice

Elite Medical Experts Partnership

Cardno ChemRisk is pleased to announce their strategic partnership with Elite Medical Experts, which will integrate university physicians and surgeons into health risk evaluations in litigation and consulting. 

“Our companies both strive to deliver health and medical evaluations of the highest scientific quality, so our collaboration is a natural fit,” said Dr. Kenneth Mundt, Senior Principal Health Scientist at Cardno ChemRisk.

Dr. Mundt, a recent appointee to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Scientific Advisory Board, was instrumental in spearheading the collaborative partnership with Elite.

Cardno ChemRisk specializes in helping clients characterize the health and environmental risk associated with complex exposures involving chemicals, pharmaceuticals, or radionuclides in a variety of media and environments. Cardno ChemRisk has a long history of risk assessment and occupational health and safety support. Their work extends to diverse sectors, including energy, pharmaceutical, technology, healthcare, and the food and beverage industries. Cardno ChemRisk provides clients ongoing and short-notice emergency response support for routine operations as well as novel issues as they arise, such as COVID-19, related to a range of scientific and risk evaluation services.

By combining resources and insight, Cardno ChemRisk and Elite Medical Experts bridge the risk continuum from general epidemiology to case-specific medical analysis. “Elite’s strength is its unrivalled ability to align Professors of Medicine and Surgery as experts for trial attorneys and corporate consulting,” said Dr. Burton Bentley II, Elite Medical’s CEO. The partnership also brings Dr. Tom Fariss, recent Vice President of Global Health at Kimberly-Clark, to augment Cardno ChemRisk’s Occupational Health & Safety team.

Clients may access Cardno ChemRisk’s expanded offerings beginning March 2021.
