AgrAbility's OTD student conducted outreach at the National Seaweed Symposium which is a convening of key industry, regulatory, academic, and professional leaders in and contributors to, the US seaweed sector. The three-day conference featured targeted presentations, unique field trips, and engaging networking sessions. Three clients signed up to learn more about how AgrAbility can help them in this industry.
Staff and OTD students provided instruction during five sessions to 130 loggers in Ft. Kent at the Canadian border, focusing on back health through posture, and identifying key areas on the body for loggers to pay attention to in order to reduce musculoskeletal disorders. Loggers were given stretches to perform throughout the day to help keep the curves in their back healthy.
