About the program
The Healthy Aging strategy through Extension offers physical activity and nutrition education, and health promotion to elders throughout Nevada. The Healthy Aging strategy is partially funded by the Nevada Division of Health and Human Services Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed). Extension's Healthy Aging initiative performs a Physical Activity and Nutrition Environmental Scan to determine needs within a community, then coordinates and implements programming to meet those needs. The goal of SNAP-Ed is to support limited-resource families in making healthy food and lifestyle choices. The Healthy Aging strategy through Extension offers the following SNAP-Ed programs to provide skills that support making healthy eating choices and encouraging an active lifestyle. Overall, the goal of these programs is to provide educational offerings that improve the health and quality of life of Nevada's older adult population.
