Abstract

The field of agromedicine faces numerous policy and organizational development challenges as it enters the 21st Century. To gauge these, the authors surveyed attendees of the 14th Annual Meeting of the North American Agromedicine Consortium (NAAC) in Charleston, South Carolina, in November 2001. Survey questions dealt with agromedicine policy issues, organizational/programmatic issues, the agromedicine core areas, the usefulness of state reports at the meeting, and important policy, organizational and programmatic issues that were missing from, or insufficiently covered at the meeting. While respondents clearly saw serious obstacles facing agromedicine as it continues to develop, they also felt that the NAAC and the profession served important roles in furthering education, research and client service.
