This is our introductory unit, where we recommend everyone start when taking the class.  Later chapters may be completed in any order, but we recommend starting here so you understand the purpose and influence health care professionals and other advocates have in helping us protect the health and safety of farmers.

Note:  After completing this unit, you can take any of the other unit.

Chapter 1: Welcome!

This chapter introduces us to the structure and purpose of the Ag Health 101 course

Chapter 2:  Health Belief Model Framework

This chapter reviews the concepts of a health promotion model, with a discussion framed for the context of working with agricultural workers.  Listeners will understand the many components that are needed to address behavior changes to improve health and safety on the farm.
