Our Outreach programs translate our research findings into public education. These programs provide information on the wise use of food dollars, food safety, and how to use nutrition and physical activity to reduce body fat, maintain weight and build strong bones and muscle.
Cooperative Extension education is available for most counties in Arizona through the University of Arizona Nutrition Network (AZNN). Each year we contact more than a million people in Arizona with current nutrition and physical activity information. These programs bring more than $7 million to our state annually.
