The health and wellness program area encompasses a broad array of health and wellness, issues including agricultural health and safety, consumer health education, health literacy, environmental health, access to health care and preventive services and community health planning. Results are achieved through partnerships within the Land-grant University System and the health community at the local, state, and federal levels.
