Rising to New Challenges
The 2020 Midwest Rural Agricultural Safety and Health (MRASH) Conference is scheduled for November 17-18. True to our theme and given the uncertainty we currently face, this year’s conference will be a hybrid incorporating both online and face-to-face components.
The Heartland Acres Agribition Center in Independence, Iowa will be the site of our in-person activities. The Heartland Acres complex features an event center, an agricultural museum and the ISU Extension Office. We have some exciting ideas planned for ways to bring the local flavor to our online elements. If necessary, we will move the full conference to a virtual setting.
The online opportunity offers a bonus: individuals worldwide interested in agricultural health and safety information, research or outreach projects can consider submitting an abstract, becoming a sponsor or attending the conference.
