AgriSafe joined the National AgrAbility team in 2021 to enhance the delivery of AgrAbility’s resources and services through the extensive network of rural health professionals that has been developed by AgriSafe over the past twenty years. This includes identification of AgrAbility’s resources and services in AgriSafe’s newsletters and other communications. AgriSafe works with the NAP to increase participation in webinar series that target rural health care professionals with current, evidence-based information on health and safety issues that impact farm and ranch families.
As executive director of AgriSafe for more than sixteen years, Natalie Roy utilizes her public health training to improve the quality of health care offered to farm families. Natalie holds a masters in public health from Tulane University. She is pleased to work in the area of agricultural health as it relates to her experience growing up on a farm in Canterbury, New Hampshire. She resides with her family in Louisiana but has deep roots in New England.
