PREPARE FOR INITIATIVE ON OBESITY
Since December a group of WSU extension and resident instruction
faculty have joined with U of Idaho faculty to pursue funding for
a project focused on youth obesity. Dr. Kathe Gabel, UI, has offered
to serve as project director. The group pursued Cooperative State
Research, Education and Extension Service (CSREES) supplemental
funding by submitting a letter of intent on June 30 and a proposal
on July 30. A maximum amount of $1 million would be available across
a four-year period. Requirements of the proposal include integration
of research, extension, and education or multi-state, multi-institutional,
or multidisciplinary work. The researchers and practitioners hope
to build on a strong foundation of ongoing projects in both states.
addition, Sue Butkus collaborated with the Northwest Indian College
to submit a proposal on obesity and diabetes education.
ANNIVESARY OF THE INTERNATIONAL YEAR OF THE FAMILY 2004
Almost a dozen years ago the National Council on Family Relations
joined with the United Nations to acknowledge, celebrate, and contribute
to the International Year of the Family (1994). Some of you may
remember One World, Many Families, published by NCFR in 1993. NCFR
is beginning once again to work with the United Nations in planning
for the 10th Anniversary of the IYF. Program activities would begin
at NCFR's 2003 Annual Conference in Vancouver, British Columbia,
and end at the 2004 Annual Conference in Orlando, Florida. The committee
is also planning to publish a special issue of the Journal of Marriage
and Family devoted to "International Perspectives on Families
and Social Change." Plans are underway to link with the Vienna
NGO (non-governmental organization) Committee on the Family to go
forward with an art campaign project for children titled "A
page from our family chronicle." A special summer 2004 international
study-conference on the family will meet in the Dominican Republic.
Mike is continuing to recover from surgery and will be out of the
