Health, access to care and health insurance affect the vitality of agricultural enterprises and farm and ranch families, according to results from a national research project funded by the USDA. Designed for Extension, tax, loan, health and other agricultural advisors, this webinar will provide an overview of the research findings and introduce some practical tools that educators and advisors can use to help farmers and ranchers make informed decisions for their businesses and households.
Participants will leave the webinar with:– An understanding of the intersection of health and agricultural business viability, grounded in 2016-2017 national research findings;– Tools they can use in their work farmers, including worksheets, videos and other informational resources.– Questions to ask farmers and ranchers to help incorporate health costs into farm enterprise and risk management planning.
Hosted by Scott Loveridge (North Central Regional Center for Rural Development); the webinar will include presentations from Shoshanah Inwood (The Ohio State University), Bonnie Braun (University of Maryland Extension), and Bob Parsons and Jake Jacobs (University of Vermont Extension).For more information, please email Katlyn.Morris@uvm.edu.
