    ABSTRACT:
    On May 28, 2015, the Upper Midwest Agricultural Safety and Health Center (UMASH), the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire’s College of Nursing and Health Sciences, the AgriSafe Network, and the Southern Minnesota Center of Agriculture co-sponsored a forum to discuss agriculture health and safety education.  Attendees varied by discipline including farmers, educators, agricultural media, company human resource managers, nurses, physicians, and veterinarians.  Specifically, the assembled group was interested in improving agricultural health and safety and reducing injuries through agricultural education.  The forum participants were charged with identifying better ways to incorporate safety and health as part of our educational curricula, targeting educational strategies for the next generation of farmers and workers, and strategizing on ways to improve health and safety in the changing agricultural sectors.  This synopsis highlights some of the key items discussed during the meeting and some needed next steps.
