A champion of rural health care
Canada is one of the most rural nations of the world, with 30% of its population living distant from large metropolitan areas. Canada is also the fifth largest agricultural exporter in the world, with more than 2 million men and women working in agricultural production. These men and women, our nation’s farmers, often face hazardous working conditions and health risks unfamiliar or unknown to citizens living in urban centres. As a physician and specialist in respiratory medicine, Dr. James A. Dosman, has devoted his long career to improving and protecting the health of agricultural workers in Canada and throughout the world. Farmers who feed our cities and who help to feed the world have a tireless advocate in Dr. Dosman.
