Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, in collaboration with COVID Recovery Iowa, will offer eight online “Stress on the Farm: Strategies That Help” programs beginning Monday, July 13.
Given the anxiety produced by the COVID pandemic, we all need to be more aware of the signs of stress, not only for ourselves, but also so we can direct others to assistance. This program will be held during the lunch hour to meet the busy schedules of those in the agricultural community. Each program will last for one-half hour on the following dates and times:
- Monday, July 13 at 12:30 p.m.
- Wednesday, July 15 at 12:30 p.m.
- Monday, July 20 at 12:30 p.m.
- Wednesday, July 22 at 12:30 p.m.
- Monday, July 27 at 12:30 p.m.
- Wednesday, July 29 at 12:30 p.m.
- Monday, Aug. 3 at 12:30 p.m.
- Wednesday, Aug. 5 at 12:30 p.m.
Agribusiness professionals, agriculture lenders and bankers, veterinarians, vet techs, commodity group members, producers, and other concerned individuals can register at no cost for any of these programs.
