NFMC Community Impact
Since its inception in 1982, Auction of Champions has raised nearly $4.6 million for the National Farm Medicine Center (NFMC), an invaluable resource for the agricultural industry in Wisconsin for 40 years. Over the past year, the NFMC has addressed and met challenges of agricultural health and safety by:
Offering rebate incentives for farmers to retrofit old tractors with life-saving roll bars through the Wisconsin Rollover Protection Structure (ROPS) Rebate Program.
Protecting the safety and health of responders by training them to safely handle hazards specific to farm environments in a rescue training program led by NFMC and Pittsville Fire Department.
Enrolling Wisconsin farm families in a national study looking at the role children play in the COVID-19 pandemic.
Developing an inventory of mental health programs available to farmers to assess the challenges and opportunities to better support farmers’ mental health.
Supporting AgInjuryNews (AgInjuryNews.org), an online database of agricultural injury reports, to monitor trends, identify new injury agents and emerging issues, provide safety messages for media reports and raise awareness and knowledge of agricultural injuries and prevention strategies for adults and children.
Identifying alternative methods to improve health care services and health research in rural health systems through mobile and wireless health technologies to overcome challenges posed by distance and the COVID-19 pandemic.
Editing and assembling a special issue of the Journal of Agromedicine, the world’s leading source of peer-reviewed translational research related to agricultural health, safety and medicine. NFMC has edited the journal since 2004.
