The coronavirus pandemic has created an increased awareness of health. Because everyone has a different definition of what it means to live a healthy life, a group of Kansas State University specialists has re-booted a blog called Health Means to help people figure out the best way to live more healthfully – and in turn, improve the health of their families and community. K-State Research and Extension family resource management specialist Elizabeth Kiss (Kish) and Extension nutrition specialist Sandy Procter discuss how the blog can help people in many areas, including family life, child and youth development, adult development and aging, family finances, healthy eating and active living, and community health and health policy.

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.
