NFMC Community Impact
Over the past year, The National Farm Medicine Center has used Auction of Champions funds to:
- Conduct skin cancer screenings at the Marshfield Farm Show and the Wisconsin Potato and Vegetable Growers Association annual conference. In partnership with MCHS Dermatology professionals, potentially life-saving screening was provided to 245 people. Seventy-one individuals were referred for additional examination.
- Support AgInjuryNews.org, an open-access online tool containing a database of thousands of agricultural injury reports gleaned primarily from U.S. news outlets. AgInjuryNews.org published 471 reports on its website (www.aginjurynews.org) over the past year, providing a clearer picture of agricultural injuries in Wisconsin and across the nation.
- Edit the peer-reviewed Journal of Agromedicine, the world’s primary venue for disseminating agricultural safety and health research results. NFMC has edited the journal since 2004.
- Support the Wisconsin ROPS (Rollover Protection Structure) Rebate Program, which provided up to $865 to farmers for the purpose of retrofitting their tractors with roll bars.
