Walk Kansas state leader, Sharolyn Jackson, says the program enables participants to make small changes over several weeks to improve their health and well-being. This year’s Walk Kansas begins March 26th and runs through May 20th.

    Parents: Be Present and Responsive to Children

    Parents: Be Present and Responsive to Children

    As we begin a new year, Kansas State University child development specialist Bradford Wiles suggests reflecting on the things we do well because we want to maintain those things while we try to improve in other areas. For parents, he recommends they pause and reflect on ways that will best help children develop as they work through adolescence. He says engaging in a daily dialogue with children from a young age demonstrates parents are really interested in their lives. It’s by being present and responsive to their needs that parents can model life skills to their children.

    Tips for Achieving Goals

    Tips for Achieving Goals

    When it comes to goal-setting, Kansas State University family resource management specialist Elizabeth Kiss (kish) says we often think it’s all or nothing…”We think ‘I have to do this or ‘I have to be focused…’ However, that’s not necessarily the best or most successful way to achieve goals. Instead, Kiss recommends taking the long view on goals – which is a kinder, gentler approach. To improve your success rate, she suggests writing down your goals, sharing them and reviewing them periodically; but not obsessing over them.

    Designing for Health

    Designing for Health

    Kansas State University and K-State Research and Extension’s work shows how efforts at the community level – focusing on social determinants of health, health equity and health literacy – are crucial to improving people’s health. In K-State’s Department of Interior Architecture and Industrial Design, most of assistant professor Kendra Kirchmer’s scholarship focuses on the enormous impact places we spend most of our time – our homes, workplaces and schools – have as upstream determinants of health outcomes. She says your zip code is a better determinant of health outcomes than your genetic code.
