Dr. James Dosman, often known as the "father of agricultural medicine" in Canada, has been instrumental in establishing rural health and safety programs nationally and internationally.
An outstanding physician scientist, he helped to found such initiatives as the first annual Agriculture Health and Safety Conference, the Canadian Agricultural Injury Surveillance Program, the Canadian Agriculture Safety Program, and the Agricultural Health and Safety Network, which provides educational services, respiratory health and hearing screening programs, courses in emergency preparedness, and other educational opportunities to agricultural populations.
He has devoted his career to improving the health of, and preventing injury to, farmers and their families, working to enhance the health of agricultural populations in Canada and worldwide.
Recently honoured for his contributions to the advancement of agricultural health and safety in Canada by being named an officer of the Order of Canada, James Dosman, as the President and CEO of Agrivita Canada Inc., continues his commitment to improving the lives of those who live and work in agriculture and rural communities.
