On October 16, 2012, Steve Swain, rural rehabilitation specialist with the Indiana AgrAbility Project/Breaking New Ground, staffed a display at the Purdue Extension Health and Human Sciences Educators Fall Update Workshop held in Lafayette, Indiana. The display included BNG publications, displayed assistive technology for home and garden, and featured the short version of the NAP video. The information was very well-received and has led to several opportunities such as a county fairgrounds assessment, speaking engagements, and possible farm visits.
