Pacific Northwest Agricultural Safety and Health Center (PNASH)

“The Pacific Northwest Agricultural Safety and Health Center at the University of Washington was established in 1996 and is part of a vital national infrastructure dedicated to the prevention of illness and injury among agricultural producers, workers, and their families. The center works to achieve this goal through partnerships with key stakeholders in the Northwest region (Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington) and it works collaboratively with other regional centers to formulate national programs and policies in agricultural health and safety. Since the Center’s inception, it has worked to engage the three major agricultural sectors in the Northwest: farming, forestry, and fishing. The Center reflects a cross-disciplinary, multi-institutional, and geographically diverse set of initiatives whose efforts focus primarily on populations not well represented in current research, including hired laborers, migrant/seasonal workers, women, and children.”

WA Rural Health Association

“The Washington Rural Health Association’s mission is to collaboratively strengthen and improve the health of rural communities.

The Washington Rural Health Association was formed in 1988, an outgrowth of the developing vision of many individuals and organizations who recognized the value of uniting to support rural health care throughout the state of Washington.

The Washington Rural Health Association recognizes that rural areas are unique and differ from urban areas in their geography, population mix and density, economics, lifestyle, values, and social organizations. Rural people and communities require programming and advocacy that responds to their unique characteristics and needs.

Through discussion and exploration, the WRHA works to create a clear understanding of rural health care in Washington, its needs and effective ways to meet these needs.”
