Less than a month ago, I was packing my bags – ready to forget my worries and relax on the beach in Florida. By the time I returned, the world around me was spiraling out of control. This is a time of uncertainty — globally and locally. The entire USU Extension Create Better Health team wants to help. They are here to provide you with information and resources to help struggling families during this time. USU Extension has specialists working on information regarding COVID-19. Please check our COVID-19 Resource page the USU Extension COVID-19 Resources page, and our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts regularly as we share resources that might help. We know food security is a priority and we are committed to share ways to prepare meals with foods you have on hand or ingredients you might find at food pantries during this crisis. We’ll post relevant nutrition and fitness related information and throw in a delicious recipe or two!
We have Create Better Health Ambassadors in most counties across the state of Utah. In accordance with the CDC, we have canceled our face-to-face classes. Our Ambassadors are actively seeking ways they can continue to help. Click here for a list of County Facebook pages. Each page will be posting information relevant to their respective counties
We’ve also encouraged our Ambassadors to host Facebook live classes as a way to provide you nutrition education in a safe way while social distancing. We’ll post dates and times for the live broadcasts as they are scheduled. Please reach out to us via email (firstname.lastname@example.org), or through social media with questions. Stay healthy everyone!
