Join us in Council Bluffs, IA on November 28 and 29 for the 17th annual MRASH Conference!
The Midwest Rural Agricultural Safety and Health (MRASH) Conference brings together diverse participants, all interested in various aspects of agricultural health and safety. This year, we will be “Stressing Resilience” at the MRASH Conference. Stress impacts a farmer’s ability to focus and correlates with both physical health problems and higher injury rates. Our keynote speaker will address how process management can help reduce stress and related injuries. Breakout sessions will include stress and resiliency.
New this year
- In-depth preconference workshop on immigrant farmworker health issues.
- Special anhydrous ammonia safety workshops, one for firefighters and emergency services personnel and one for farmers and co-op personnel.
- Flashtalks at the poster reception on Wednesday evening.
Whether you are a farmer, health or ag business professional, researcher, educator, student or policy maker, we hope you will join us as a sponsor, exhibitor, poster presenter or conference participant. You can register for the full conference or only the parts you wish to attend.
