Florence Becot

Florence Becot9_9

Associate Research Scientist at the National Farm Medicine Center – United States.


I am a rural sociologist with a research program focused on the health, well-being, safety, and economic viability of farm families. My work first considers the ways in which difficulties meeting social needs such as health care, childcare, or aging, expand beyond the confines of the personal sphere and can have direct implications on the farm including the adoption of farm safety practices and farm business development.

Directly tied to farm households’ ability to meet their social needs, my work also explores the availability and types of social supports, including crisis support, as well as the role of these support systems in supporting farm households and their farm business.  

I earned my PhD from the Ohio State University and was previously a researcher at the University of Vermont Center for Rural Studies.
