UCCE BAY AREA 2021-22 UPDATE
COVID-19 has highly impacted under-served and vulnerable populations, the working class, persons with disabilities, youth, indigenous peoples, and seniors are struggling to cope. During these challenging times, our Bay Area Advisers and Educators are continuing to work with local populations and partners by adjusting community programs to deliver value-based programming and methodologies across the entire region. In the words of team member Leah Sourbeer, “We Continue to Show Up!”.
UC Cooperative Extension (UCCE) is committed to continuing to provide our services to the communities we serve, keeping them resilient through these turbulent times. Our September Bay Area News Highlights shine a light on some of the good work happening, including Dr. Mary Blackburn' induction into the National Extension Association of Family and Consumer Sciences (NEAFCS) Hall of Fame on Sept. 14.
Collaborating with a CalFresh Healthy Living, UC educator, and UC Master Gardener Program volunteers, she recently finished a gardening project designed to improve the nutrition, physical activity, and overall well-being of senior citizens living in affordable housing in Oakland.
