Regional AgrAbility Events are a great way to network with AgrAbility peers and other professionals that have a role in assisting our clients.
The Regional Event in Frankenmuth will focus on vestibular issues, injuries to shoulders, spines, and knees, farming with carpal tunnel, rural mental health first aid, and veterans and farming with the Farmer Veteran Coalition of Michigan. There will also be a panel of farmer clients that will speak about their experience with AgrAbility
The second day will feature a tour of two AgrAbility client farms to see what adaptations were made to make it possible for these particular farmers to continue in agriculture.
Hotel rooms are available at the federal per diem rate of $83 at the Bavarian Inn until 7/8/16. Information to reserve rooms is on the event registration site.
