Emily Freudenburg was asked by the NAP team to present on farm/ranch-based assistive technology at the Regional Workshop in Sacramento. While there, Emily learned more about work the California team is doing with migrant workers and the types of assistive technology that is utilized for these individuals.
It is a sad time for Nebraska AgrAbility and the entire Nebraska agricultural community. Longtime client and advisory board member John Dvoracek passed away in December. John served on several community and state boards during his farming career. Anyone who knew John could not help but be inspired by his passion for agriculture, his family, and his community. He was one of those people who would never back down from a challenge and was always available to anyone who had a request or a need. John would call several times a year when he would learn about some new piece of assistive technology or tool that might help others with their disability. He was a tremendous advocate for the Nebraska project and, beyond that, he was a really good friend. The "Milo Man" will certainly be missed. Obituary: http://bit.ly/2ttgUQ3
