Health and Nutrition programs meet community needs

University of Minnesota Extension Health and Nutrition staff are working in two Southwest Minnesota communities to ensure that a promising program, I Can Prevent Diabetes ICANPD, is adapted for the food and lifestyle of Somali populations.

In Northeastern Minnesota, staff members of Extension Health and Nutrition and Healthy Northland are collaborating to assess the food environment in communities, stores, worksites and congregate housing sites as a first step toward creating healthy food environments in the region.
