Journalist Lela Nargi covers the essential work by Bassett’s NYCAMH to connect farmers with funds to help keep them farming — safely.
“NYCAMH is one of 12 federally funded organizations across the country that conduct agriculture health and safety research. NYCAMH also provides safety training to farmers and farmworkers, on everything from using personal protective equipment to proper handling of chainsaws and manure. It’s attached to Bassett Healthcare Network, a system of hospitals, health centers and other health-related partners. This means it has the capacity to offer other things, like mental health services, in-clinic checkups, and onsite visits to administer Covid vaccines,” writes Nargi for Ambrook Research.
