Community Health: FCS Extension Educators Deliver Diabetes Education in PA
Cox, Jill N.; Corbin, Marilyn
Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v103 n1 p19-21 2011
For decades, family and consumer sciences (FCS) Extension educators have provided health related education to consumers through Cooperative Extension programming at land grant universities. However, offering diabetes education can be extra challenging due to the complicated nature of the disease and the multi-faceted treatment required. Faced with an increasing prevalence of type-2 diabetes and pre-diabetes, public health advocates are turning to nontraditional programming to help reverse this trend. (Contains 12 resources.)
