Seminar: “Community Engaged Approaches to Promote the Health of Agricultural Workers” with Catherine LePrevost
- This event has passed.
Speaker: Catherine LePrevost (https://cals.ncsu.edu/applied-ecology/people/celeprev/)
Abstract: Agriculture is consistently ranked as one of the most hazardous industries due to the elevated risk of pesticide exposure, heat illness, long-term musculoskeletal damage, injuries, and fatalities. The approximately 73,000 migrant and seasonal agricultural workers in North Carolina each year experience significant health issues as hazardous work conditions are compounded by challenges associated with chronic disease management. For National Farm Safety and Health Week 2023, come hear about community-engaged approaches to reduce health disparities among agricultural workers in North Carolina. We will discuss efforts to develop new educational resources, engage community health workers in research, and advance digital equity for agricultural communities.
