Searcy, Ark. –
During this time when most of us are staying home to protect ourselves and others, you might want something to do or a way to learn from experts who use research-based information. The University of Arkansas, Division of Agriculture, Cooperative Extension Service can help you out! Many of the 4-H and Family and Consumer Science Agents across the state are using this time when we are telecommuting to develop online learning environments. The FCS agents have developed a Facebook page At Home with UAEX to provide these learning experiences. You will find many topics including Living Well with Diabetes, Family Relationships, Financial Management, Nutrition and Healthy Living, Recipes, and Physical Activity. Like and follow the page to receive new ideas daily from wherever you are. Here’s a hint of what’s already up and what’s coming:
