The Department of Family and Community Health Sciences (FCHS) helps people stay healthy, enjoy life, be active, and reduce healthcare costs. Many of today’s health problems–obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer—can be reduced through good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle. FCHS encourages today’s busy families and individuals to learn more and make personal choices to improve health. FCHS combines research and practical advice to improve your health for a better tomorrow.
