It was two days of sharing ideas, service delivery strategies, and building on providing a comprehensive AgrAbility program. The New Mexico staff was welcoming and made the visit so enjoyable. A special thank-you to Sonja Koukel, Tracey Agiovlasitis, and Robert Hagevoort for this invite to visit their project in our sister state of New Mexico. Colorado AgrAbility wishes them the best in their continued service delivery.

Keefe Memorial Hospital in Cheyenne Wells, in partnership with the Colorado Cancer Coalition, held the 2022 Cheyenne County Health Fair and Hospital Week. They had an excellent turnout, and AgrAbility had the opportunity to present to the attendees about the project and to host an assistive technology table for all to visit and discuss the numerous AT examples.
