Rehabilitating Nebraska Farmers & Ranchers with Disabilities

Date: Time: 8:00 am–5:00 pm
Zoom Conferencing
Contact: Nancy Frecks, (308) 334-5666, Nfrecks1@unl.edu
Occupational and physical therapists are invited to this day-long seminar being sponsored by Nebraska AgrAbility. Continuing Education Units have been applied for with NPTA and will be awarded for the seminar.

Most do not realize it, but when a farmer or rancher is discharged from care following an injury or serious illness, he or she is not only returning home, but is also returning to an industrial work site. Occupational therapists, physical therapists, OT assistants and PT assistants can play an important role in preparing farmers and ranchers to return to their homes. When home includes the workplace, special considerations are needed to ensure a safe transition.

Pre-registration for the seminar is required by September 20, 2021, by emailing Nancy Frecks at: nfrecks1@unl.edu. An invoice will be sent for payment after registration is received. A complete agenda and registration materials are available online at agrability.unl.edu. or by contacting Nancy Frecks, Nebraska Extension Educator, (308) 334-5666, or nfrecks1@unl.edu.

Nebraska AgrAbility is a partnership of the University of Nebraska–Lincoln Extension and Easter Seals Nebraska.
