Week 6 in Region 13

Community Health Wellness Walk

On Wednesday, we had our weekly Community Health Wellness Walk; unfortunately, we had to move it inside to the Petersen Family Wellness Center due to the rain. Instead of walking laps around Pioneer Park, we walked around the running track. Even though the location was changed, we still had a great turnout for our walk. 

Career Exploration Day in Ames

We traveled up to Ames for Career Exploration Day to learn more about the possible careers in extension. In the morning, we got a tour of the Horticulture Research Station. We got to see the apple orchards, where they explained how they protect the apples from insects or any other factors that can affect product quality. We then saw where they are growing the soccer field for ISU Athletics. We spent our afternoon at the Memorial Union learning about Human Sciences and Community and Economic Development/Design and the different jobs that they offer. 

Shelby County Wellness Alliance 

Julia has continued to create content for the Shelby County Wellness Alliance Facebook page. The goal of the Shelby County Wellness Alliance Facebook page is to encourage Shelby County residents to exercise more, eat healthier, and achieve overall wellness. This is achieved by spreading information and promoting events. One of the flyers Julia created this week was this one for kayak fishing on Sunday, July 2nd.
