UMASH engages directly with the people affected by and involved in agriculture to build partnerships and create a 2-way flow of information. This includes producers, processors, agri-businesses, public health and health care practitioners, farm family members, and many others.
Throughout the year, UMASH researchers and staff connect with agricultural, scientific and community groups through seminars, meetings, public events, educational/training workshops, conferences, and presentations to share research findings, provide safety training and resources, and engage in discussions to learn about emerging needs, trends or challenges that may affect agricultural health and safety.
UMASH WELLNESS PAVILION AT MINNESOTA FARMFESTThe UMASH Wellness Pavillion is a fun and engaging way to get the attendees of Minnesota Farmfest excited about Living Healthy, Farming Safely. The goal is to promote safety, health, and injury prevention with safety and health resources for farmers, farmworkers, and families. UMASH brings health and safety partners together to offer live ag safety and rescue demonstrations, ag health and safety exhibitors, hands-on activities, and more!
