Activity can be a big player in disease prevention. K-State Research and Extension family and consumer science specialist and the state coordinator of Extension’s Walk Kansas, Sharolyn Jackson, says it is also a big player in managing disease. This year’s Walk Kansas, which begins March 28th and runs through May 22nd, has added new features to focus even more on physical and mental health. Jackson discusses the benefits of participating in the eight-week program that encourages physical activity and healthy eating.
