Women’s health issues and insurance needs were being discussed today and a panel of women who own their own business was also on the agenda.
Tomorrow’s event will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The conference will be divided into three sessions with the topics such as “Current Research Work in Jackson County,” “Ag Production Alternatives in SW Oklahoma,” and “Commodity Markets.”
