Spring has arrived and summer isn't far behind. At Mayo Clinic, which includes a rural trauma center located in an agricultural region, we appreciate that along with the change of seasons comes the busy season for farmers and farm families, who are readying equipment and preparing to work the fields. Trauma providers also should be readying themselves to care for farmers who may be injured during this busy time. This issue, therefore, is intended to help our rural providers prepare to care for agricultural workers.
