On June 2, 2020, Maine AgrAbility presented the webinar: Arthritis and Agriculture: the Importance of Protecting Your Joints

Farmers lose quality-of-life because of chronic pain, aching, stiffness, and swelling in and around the joints. Making small changes in their working routines and using Assistive Technology (AT) can significantly reduce injury to the joints. Please join this discussion of Arthritis, the prevalence of the disease in farmers, and possible modifications to reduce its effects.
