Family and Community Health

Oregon State University Extension's Family & Community Development Field Faculty work collaboratively with community organizations and Extension volunteers to develop programs.

Nutrition

Food insecurity and poor nutrition are present across all age groups. One in eight individuals is using food stamps. Obesity and often-accompanying diabetes have been identified as the most significant health challenges. Food safety, especially in the increasingly larger and more vulnerable older adult population, remains a constant threat.
