The National Children’s Center for Rural and Agricultural Health and Safety is celebrating 25 years of preventing injuries associated with the agricultural worksite, one of the nation’s most hazardous worksites and the only one where children of any age may be present.

Speakers will include Barbara Lee, Ph.D., director of the National Children’s Center since its inception in 1997; Marsha Salzwedel, Ed.D., project scientist and agricultural youth safety specialist at the National Children’s Center; Marilyn Adams, founder, Farm Safety 4 Just Kids; Dennis Murphy, Ph.D., professor emeritus, Penn State University; and Jana Davidson, M.S., program manager, Progressive Agriculture Foundation.
