What is HHS?

Purdue Extension Health and Human Sciences (HHS) provides education to people of all ages in Indiana’s 92 counties on the topics of food, family, money & health. The community is our classroom – where we bring university information to the local level and help people strengthen families, spend smart, eat right, and live well.

     The Purdue Extension-Jackson County Health and Human Sciences program strives to bring education to those in our community. Whether that be food-based knowledge and safety, money management, or even de-cluttering advice, this program offers a variety of adult and youth classes catered to such needs.
