Purdue Women in Agriculture Upcoming Webinar: Arthritis and Agriculture

Arthritis is the leading cause of disability in the United States, affecting 50 million adults and 300,000 children.  Of the many forms, Osteoarthritis affects 27 million adults.  Agriculture is a very demanding occupation, often requiring work above and beyond their body’s physical capabilities, which puts farmers, ranchers, and employees at danger for joint injury, stress and strain.  An estimated 1/3 of all adult farmers in the US have some form of arthritis.  By partnering with The National AgrAbility Project, the Arthritis Foundation is gaining ground on arthritis, and helping to make agriculture and rural America more accessible. 

Our presenter will be Amber D. Wolfe, M.S. She joined the National AgrAbility project team in 2009 as the AgrAbility project coordinator for the Arthritis Foundation.  Her work on the arthritis and agriculture project covers both state and national levels and is focused on rural audiences of all ages and experiences.  She serves as a resource for rural arthritis issues. Amber provides training to professionals and consumers via rural arthritis workshops and also assists in developing resources related to rural arthritis.  Amber has brought her experiences with 4-H and FFA youth into the AgrAbility area by working with rural youth to prevent the early-onset of osteoarthritis in their generation.
