Western Region Agricultural Stress Assistance Program (WRASAP) Network Quarterly Meeting
April 21, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm PDTFree
This is a 90 minute networking event.
High levels of stress are present in agricultural communities. Unstable finances, the pressure of multigenerational farm lineage, injury, chronic illness, harsh weather conditions, and more recently stressors associated with COVID-19 are among the challenges producers face daily. The WRASAP network of partners believes that the unique needs of agricultural communities must be addressed. This is done through communication and collaboration with partners across the Western region to offer education, support in navigating resources, and funding opportunities for agricultural communities.
Dr. Annie J. Keeney, from San Diego State University’s School of Social Work will be discussing Occupational Stressors and Access to COVID-19 Resources Among Commuting and Residential Farmworkers. Dr. Keeney will share her findings from a recent project which examined COVID-19 related stressors and barriers to vaccination and testing among the commuting and residential farmworker populations in Imperial County, California. This presentation will be followed by Montana State University’s Assistant Professor, Dr. Michelle Grocke who will share details about the currently active WRASAP: Farmworker Baseline Survey.
Intended Audience: WRASAP lead agencies; WRASAP collaborating organizations; any agency/health provider/program providing services to producers (agricultural farmers, ranchers, workers, business owners, and non-industrial private forest owners and managers) and their families in Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Wyoming.
