Health & Nutrition
Making healthy choices isn't always easy. North Carolina Cooperative Extension's
educators help people sort fact from fad, providing research-based programs that
promote a lifetime of good health. Programs cover a broad spectrum, from pesticide
safety to indoor air quality, from childhood nutrition and physical activity to
heart-healthy eating and food safety.
