Fact sheets can be used for a variety of health and wellness education needs. They are resources that provide employers with educational materials that can be quickly accessed and disseminated. Fact sheets can be easily e-mailed to employees, posted on central bulletin boards in lunch rooms or health centers and distributed at health fairs or during diabetes support groups.
Special Notes:Many of these fact sheets are courtesy of the Cooperative Extension Service, the University of Georgia College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences and the College of Family and Consumer Sciences. They have been previously published by the University of Georgia.
