Anticipating Issues

Scott Timm and students in Fairfield

ISU Extension and Outreach anticipates emerging issues and trends. We ask questions and provide education so Iowans can thrive and succeed. For example, Scott Timm, an ISU Extension community economic development specialist, works with the city of Fairfield on sustainability issues. A recent project involved high school students weatherizing older homes in the community.

Through the Powerful Tools for Caregivers program, ISU Extension and Outreach educates caregivers so they can take better care of themselves and provide better care to their loved ones.

Deann Hebert teaches family and consumer sciences at Des Moines East High School. She tells how ISU Extension and Outreach is able to anticipate what students and 4-H’ers need — to be part of something and be successful. Watch the video about these efforts.
