Building our Research Core - Submit an Abstract!

To prepare for a competitive renewal, HICAHS has initiated a strategic planning process that included a regional needs assessment and input from our external advisory board.  Now, we are soliciting abstracts for projects that will contribute to the overarching framework of the HICAHS center renewal and in particular facilitate synergism within HICAHS from 2021-2026. These projects should help expand and advance the understanding of worker health and safety as it pertains to agricultural workers and their families in the Rocky Mountain/High Plains region.
HICAHS leadership and administration is located at Colorado State University; however, investigators from institutions across the region are invited to submit an abstract. Click here to download the request for abstracts and submission instructions. Abstracts are due November 10, 2019.
