Respiratory Health

The Western Center for Agricultural Health and Safety conducts research on respiratory health and dairy farms that aims to inform best practices and improve worker health. California's dairy industry is larger than that of any other state. It provides billions of dollars to the State's economy and is a major employer of agricultural labor.

Small Grant Program

The 2017-2018 call for small grant proposals is currently closed and will reopen during the next cycle. 

The Small Grant Program provides small grants to graduate student and faculty researchers for research taking place across the region, including in Arizona, California, Hawaii and Nevada. The primary goal of the WCAHS Small Grant Program is to encourage the development of creative research and intervention projects while nurturing researchers - particularly junior researchers - interested in agricultural health and safety research.
