The stress of farming can strain a couple's relationship, but the relationship doesn't have to break. Help is one click away!

Buying health insurance is more complicated than buying a piece of furniture or even a car. There is a lot to know, and informed consumers can make better choices.  Learn more about how to make a Smart Choice with the research-based, non-commercial and non-political information through the ISU Extension and Outreach workshop which was recorded on December 1, 2015.  http://www.extension.iastate.edu/cerrogordo/content/smart-choice-health-insurance-education.
