George Cook and Gail Lapierre presented Farming with a Disability, Tom Younkman and Margaret Gilman offered administrative and technical support and Janis Moore participated to gain the course certificate. Physicians, medical students, agricultural professionals, and community leaders came together to gain evidence based education on agricultural health. Up to 50 CMEs can be earned through the training.

Dr. Kelley Donham of ICASH combined his years of expertise and Iowa charm to lead the engaging and highly informative 40 hour training. This year 11 hours were hosted on an eXtension Moodle classroom, including Elluminate sessions, live and archived for registered participants. Thirty people participated in the opening session with Keynote speaker, Chuck Ross, Vermont secretary of agriculture, and Dr. Stephen Leffler, chief medical officer of Fletcher Allen Health Center.
