Survey for New York Farmer Veterans: We Want to Hear From You - June 5, 2024

For Immediate Release - June 5, 2024

Cooperstown, NY--

NYCAMH and the Cornell Small Farms Program project for veterans in agriculture, Farm Ops, are working together to identify assistive needs for New York farmer veterans with impairments that affect their daily work.

As a first step, NYCAMH and Farm Ops are asking all New York veterans in agriculture to complete a short (10-minute) survey. The information gathered through this survey will help determine where there is a need in the state and will also help make a case for more funding resources to support veterans in agriculture.

Responses are confidential and anonymous. You can opt-in to get additional information about support programs at the end of the survey, but your name is not connected to your survey answers.

To find the link to the survey, go to the Cornell Small Farms Program Farm Ops Survey page at https://smallfarms.cornell.edu/2024/05/survey-for-new-york-farmer-veterans/. Responses are accepted through July 1.

 

NYCAMH, a program of Bassett Healthcare Network, is enhancing agricultural and rural health by preventing and treating occupational injury.
