Extension and research professionals join forces to address a critical nutrition issue
Date of Original Version
The land-grant mission of combining research and outreach efforts to address problems and needs of society was exemplified in the design and development of a randomized treatment-control pre-post, multi-state intervention to increase fruit and vegetable intakes of low income, young adults. Collaborative arrangements were established in 10 states to accomplish the project's multiple goals. These unique partnerships established an innovative model, paving the way for future multi-state research and Extension collaborations.
