Farmers voice to be heard on hearing project
Victorian and Queensland farmers are invited to help shape the future of farming families and agricultural workers as part of a National Health Medical Research Council research project – Shh hearing in a farming environment.
The Shhh hearing in a farming environment was developed by the National Centre for Farmer Health in partnership with Australian National University and National Acoustic Laboratories and is being provided to Victorian and Queensland farming families.
Applications are invited from farmers for the Shhh hearing in a farming environment steering group. Three farmers will be appointed and will help steer the project and identify areas for further research or service delivery along with representatives from the project management team. Sitting fees will be paid and support provided. It is envisaged four days a year will be required.
The ongoing representation of farmers on the steering group represents a unique opportunity to work with research and service delivery in both agriculture and health and continues to ensure that farmers are driving the future of our programs and guaranteeing its essential relevance to the Australian farming family” Susan Brumby said.
Applications close on November 18, 2012
