The Purdue Cooperative Extension Health and Human Sciences educators conducted their annual training session in West Lafayette, Indiana. Included in the training was exhibit time in which Indiana AgrAbility staffed an information table. The exhibit included Indiana AgrAbility brochures, universal design and home modification information, Arthritis and Agriculture booklets, Back on the Farm, Back in the Saddle booklets, and information on services available to military veterans and their families.
Indiana AgrAbility collaborator, the Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana, invited the Indiana AgrAbility rural rehabilitation specialist Steve Swain to conduct an in-service training for their therapy staff. The Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana has been ranked as one of the top 20 rehabilitation hospitals in the nation. The training included information on the AgrAbility services offered to their patients, examples of assistive technology for the farm, and sources of financial support for assistive technology for their patients.
