The University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler presents a 12-hour training program in Agromedicine!  Hundreds of rural physicians, veterinarians and healthcare professionals have attended this training program over the last 40 years.  Originally developed by Iowa's Center for Agricultural Safety and Health (I-CASH), it has been enhanced to reflect the distinct essence of Texas and taught by regional faculty, as well as the program's pioneer, Dr. Kelly Donham.

The objective of this program is to train a broad array of health providers with the basics of anticipation, recognition, diagnosis, treatment, and most importantly, the prevention of occupational and environmental illnesses and injuries within Texas rural and agricultural communities.

* The  Workshop has been approved for 10.0 CME Category 1 credits
           (see information below on CME)

The course will be presented in sunny San Antonio, Texas.  Come enjoy the Alamo and The Riverwalk while learning rural and agricultural medicine.
