In addition to physical location, we will provide two opportunities for remote connectivity including video streaming and Facebook Live.

Registration and networking at the in-person sites will begin at 9:30. This meeting will provide an opportunity for SCCAHS leaders to interact directly with representatives from agriculture, forestry and fisheries industries; farmworker, fishery, and forestry organizations; public agencies; regulatory and training organizations; and Extension. We would like to invite you to attend this meeting as your input is greatly appreciated.

The University of Florida is the lead institution of SCCAHS, partnering with the University of South Florida (USF), Florida State University (FSU), Florida A&M University (FAMU), Emory University, and the University of the Virgin Islands (UVI). These universities are working together on a range of interdisciplinary research and educational projects designed to promote occupational health and safety among employers, families, and workers at the 240,000 farms estimated by the US Department of Agriculture to be operating in the region, as well as forestry and fishery industries.

At this meeting, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn about and participate in identifying the most important occupational health and safety issues in Florida and the Southeast.
  • Provide direction for the center’s activities in enhancing the safety and health of workers in agriculture, forestry, and fishery industries.

If you have questions about this meeting, please contact Dr. Angie Lindsey (352-294-3181, ablindsey@ufl.edu).
