Professional Training Opportunities

Project Presented by Jessica Porter at the Northwest Occupational Health Conference

Jessica Porter, the former Research Coordinator for the Curl Agricultural Health Lab, presented her work Professional Training Opportunities Project (PTOP) at the Northwest Occupational Health Conference in Spokane, WA. The goal of her project, “Job Hazard Analysis in Agriculture: Developing Tools to Evaluate the Effect of Alternative Production Systems on Worker Health,” was to identify those pest management practices that differed the most between conventional and organic potato production so that differential hazards between the two production systems could be determined.
