Health and Living

Life doesn’t come with a manual, so we're glad you're here for solid advice on relationships, health, finances and food. These topics are vital to families and consumers and that's why Family and Consumer Sciences (FACS) is an essential part of University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service.


FACS engages the science and research behind what keeps us and our families healthy in mind and body. To learn more about the field of Family and Consumer Sciences, visit this page. To learn more about issues that interest you, check out the links below.
