Eat Right – What we eat impacts our health and well-being. To help prevent and manage chronic diseases, HHS Extension offers guidance on healthy food choices and meal preparation.

Live Well – Many risk factors for disability or death are preventable, and HHS Extension is dedicated to helping individuals and families improve their quality of life.
