What is the role of a Total Farmer Health Coach?

The Total Farmer Health Coach role aims to improve the health of agricultural communities through the dissemination of AgriSafe trainings and resources. The TFH Coach program fosters rapid deployment of health information through a trained TFH Coach. TFH Coaches will have a “toolbox” of AgriSafe approved trainings and resources at their disposal.

Total Farmer Health Coaches are expected to:

  1. train on AgriSafe curriculums
  2. leverage innovative partnerships
  3. improve health literacy
  4. advance their training in agricultural occupational health

Why should I be a Total Farmer Health Coach?

AgriSafe recognizes that agriculture is rapidly evolving and that more “boots on the ground” public health professionals are needed to directly connect with the occupational health needs of farmers and ranchers. If you have a public health or clinical background and a passion to serve your communities, you may be an ideal candidate for our coach program. 

What training will I receive from AgriSafe Network?

Our immersive training program will provide the tools and skills needed to become confident in your coaching role. All Total Farmer Health Coaches are expected to complete a 20 credit hour course regardless of prior experience. Throughout the Total Farmer Health Coach experience, Coaches will receive support and continuing education from AgriSafe staff.

What’s in the Total Farmer Health Coach toolbox?

  • Evidence-based research resources to address specific topics as related to agriculture health and safety disparities.
  • Public media campaigns designed to be shared via a multitude of platforms regarding current health issues in rural communities.
