Abstract The 6th International Symposium: Public Health & the Agricultural Rural Ecosystem, was held October 19-23, 2008, in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. It was organized by the Canadian Centre for Health and Safety in Agriculture with assistance of the NIOSH-funded National Children's Center for Rural and Agricultural Health and Safety in Marshfield, Wisconsin. Each NIOSH Agricultural Research Center hosted a roundtable or scientific session. The event addressed a wide spectrum of health and safety issues related to rural and agricultural environments. Symposium objectives were to: (1) describe and share state of the art science; (2) provide recommendations for further research and study areas; (3) provide recommendations for policy, health promotion and prevention; and (4) disseminate knowledge through a special issue of the Journal of Agromedicine: Practice, Policy & Research. All symposium objectives were achieved. The four major themes of this symposium, what we breathe, what we eat and drink, how we work and how we live, provided an innovative framework for discussion and scientific presentations on issues and challenges facing the future health and safety of agricultural and rural workers and families.
