Free Health Screenings through NYCAMH at NOFA-NY Winter Conference

Free Health Screenings through NYCAMH at NOFA-NY Winter Conference

Editor’s note: this blog is a guest post written by Pauline Boyer at New York Center for Agriculture Medicine and Health, one of the organizations participating in NOFA-NY’s 2019 Winter Conference.

Farmers are a very busy group of people, and too often they put their own health on the back burner. New York Center for Agriculture Medicine and Health (NYCAMH) and Healthworks would like to remind us all to keep our health and safety at the front of our minds, no matter how hectic life can get.  

NYCAMH’s mission is to enhance agricultural and rural health by preventing and treating occupational injury and illness. NYCAMH promotes safe and healthy farming through workshops, on-farm trainings, tradeshows, and free and confidential surveys.

HealthWorks offers a full range of occupational health services to meet the health and safety needs of the agricultural and regional business community. We invite you to join us at the NOFA-NY Winter Conference in Saratoga Springs, NY this coming January. On Friday, January 18 and Saturday, January 19, 2019, NYCAMH will offer FREE health screenings for the following:

  • Skin Cancer

  • Vision
  • Cholesterol/Diabetes

Screenings will be available on both days from 9:00am – 12:00pm and 1:00pm – 4:00pm. We recommend that you pre-register for an appointment. You can sign up for a free health screening when you register for the NOFA-NY conference here. NYCAMH will do our best to accommodate all walk-ins.
