Kansas, with a population of just over 2.8 million, has 342,000 people living in poverty. K-State Research and Extension is working with several groups across the state to reduce poverty by building skills and relationships that strengthen families and individuals. K-State associate professor and Extension specialist, Elaine Johannes, and Tana Warner, a coach for the THRIVE program in northeast Kansas, discuss how a “walk with me” approach is being used to break the cycle of poverty.
Sound Living is a weekly public affairs program addressing issues related to families and consumers. It is hosted by Jeff Wichman. Each episode shares the expertise of K-State specialists in fields such as child nutrition, food safety, adult development and aging, youth development, family resource management, physical fitness and more.
