Family and Community Health Program
Nancy Kershaw, OSU Extension Family and Community Health faculty (503) 842-5708 ext 213
Offering educational information for Oregon families to meet the practical challenges of daily life is the goal of the Extension's Family and Community Health program. The program addresses critical issues for individuals and families and helps Oregonians become healthy, financially secure, and responsible members of society. Program activities empower and enable individuals and families manage their resources to meet needs for food, clothing, finance, shelter, parenting, and human relationships.
Extension faculty take the research and expertise of OSU's College of Home Economics and Education to Oregonians through workshops, seminars, newsletters, consumer bulletins, home study courses, presentations to community groups, and mass media.
