Annie's Project signThe Colorado AgrAbility Project (CAP) had a wonderful opportunity this month to spread the AgrAbility message to a new audience. Candy was able to attend the Annie's Project Retreat and training held in Estes Park, CO, at the Trout Haven Resort. Annie's Project is the brainchild of University of Illinois Extension educator Ruth Hambleton as a tribute to her mother, Annette Kohlhagen Fleck. Forty-five women from across Colorado and neighboring states were in attendance. Candy had the pleasure of making a presentation to the group on the role of women in Ag where she shared information on modifications, adaptations, and services to women in farm and ranch work who experience some form of limitation. She was also able to attend sessions and to network extensively with the other attendees.

October 7, Candy Leathers co-presented on AgrAbility along with NAP's Paul Jones, Gracie Franklin (the daughter of one of CAP's clients), and APRIL's Sierra Royster at the 2018 APRIL Conference in Denver. This event kept Candy busy as she also presented along with Julia Beems of AT Partners on AT program outreach and emergency preparedness.
