Dunfee Honored for Her Live Healthy, Live Well Programming

HERSHEY, Pa. — Lorrissa Dunfee, Family and Consumer Sciences educator at the Ohio State University Extension Belmont County, was honored recently at the National Extension Association for Family and Consumer Sciences’ 85th annual session, whose theme was “Nurturing the Richness of Lifelong Learning.”

She was a member of the Live Healthy, Live Well team that received the First Place National and First Place Central Region NEAFCS Innovation in Programming Award at the conference held Sept. 30-Oct. 3, in Hershey, Pennsylvania.

In receiving the award, Dunfee was recognized for #365 Texting Educational Program.

The text program was created to enhance the existing health and wellness programming and to potentially reach a younger adult audience.

The NEAFCS Innovation Programming Awards was created in 2018 to recognize an innovative program that reaches a new audience or expands a current audience, a subject matter area, a new delivery method or another creative approach. This award is sponsored this year by the NEAFCS membership and awards fund.

Dunfee’s commitment to meeting the needs of individuals, families and communities is exemplary.
