Family & Community Health Sciences

The Family & Community Health Sciences (FCHS) department of Rutgers Cooperative Extension has a long history of providing community outreach to Jersey residents to promote health and wellness. Research shows that the risk for some chronic diseases such as obesity, heart disease, diabetes and some types of cancer could be decreased through healthful eating and regular physical activity. By providing evidence-based educational programs and information for all age groups on a variety of nutrition and health related topics, we combine research and practical advice to strive to improve your health and the health of your family for a bright tomorrow.
