During April, several sessions were offered to engage new audiences and share program resources. "Gardening & Ergonomics by Maine AgrAbility" was presented three times to more than 40 people across southern and central Maine. AgrAbility resources were also featured as part of the Franklin County Executive Committee Annual Meeting via Zoom. Project Coordinator Lani Carlson has been working with the Maine Farm & Ranch Stress Assistance Network (MeFRSAN) to assist production agriculture workers in Maine, with a focus on developing small grant opportunities for farmers.
Brie Weisman gave a virtual presentation titled "Managing Pain on the Farm" as part of the Saginaw Valley State University SOTA conference. This session was also presented at the NTW, and staff encourage other SRAPs to use this Pain Tool with their clients and provide feedback on its use.
