K-State Research and Extension’s Walk Kansas program has been helping participants improve their mental and physical health for more than 20 years. One of the keys to the success of the program is that participants are able to make small changes over an eight-week period that become a habit. In addition to being physically active and eating healthy, Walk Kansas state leader, Sharolyn Jackson, says the program provides information on chronic disease prevention, stress management, and how to select and prepare healthy recipes.
