Research, outreach and education, clinical practice and policy perspectives influence the health and safety of our rural residents and farm families undergoing transformational changes. To best respond to these changes, the Iowa Rural Health Association (IRHA) and the University of Iowa agricultural safety and health centers (MRASH) have joined forces to strengthen collaboration among rural and agricultural health partners as we explore ways to keep our people safe and healthy in an era of major policy change.
