Latino Advisory Committee

Last updated on July 20th, 2021 at 02:40 pm

AgriSafe Network’s Latino Advisory Committee works with AgriSafe to serve the Latino and Hispanic communities that are vital to the success of agriculture. The group has already been hard at work by being the critical eyes for Spanish language translation of current AgriSafe resources, made possible by a grant from the National Library of Medicine. Other projects include providing feedback on access to Spanish language content on the AgriSafe website and identifying ways AgriSafe can prioritize ag health and safety content for the Latino and Hispanic communities moving forward.
