Journalist Workshop
Children and Agriculture: Telling the Story

interview

Welcome | Participants | Past Workshops

Welcome

The goal of this workshop was to build a cadre of journalists who understand the broad scope – and preventability -- of childhood agricultural injury. Dialogue with expert sources and knowledge gathered firsthand on field trips enabled journalists to pursue the following learning objectives:

  • Understand the leading causes of childhood farm injuries at work and at play
  • Describe interventions that are most likely to be effective in preventing childhood farm injuries
  • Identify the journalist's role in protecting farm children at work and at play

The workshop was a project of the National Farm Medicine Center (NFMC) and the National Children’s Center for Rural and Agricultural Health and Safety (NCCRAHS) at the Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation. Funding for the workshop was provided by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).

Workshops have been held in Marshfield, WI (2004); Cooperstown, NY (2005); Wenatchee, WA (2006); Harrodsburg, KY (2007), and Texarkana, TX (2008).
