As part of its 2023 annual lesson series, K-State Research and Extension family and consumer sciences specialists and agents have developed several Men’s Health Guide Fact Sheets, including early detection and prevention of cancers specific to men, osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease and arthritis. According to the CDC, nearly 20% of men of all ages had doctor-diagnosed arthritis in the United States from 2013 to 2015. Undiagnosed arthritis is thought to be much higher. Holly Miner, family and consumer sciences agent for nutrition, food safety and health in the Wildcat Extension District has authored the Men’s Health Guide Fact Sheet, Arthritis: Four Common Conditions. It contains a description of the four major types of arthritis, risk factors, diagnosis, and a healthy dietary pattern to help prevent or lessen the risk of some types of arthritis.

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.
