Jennifer Wilson, the director of K-State Research and Extension in Riley County, stops by the studio to share her front-row views about the long-term value of 4-H, Medicare counseling and the SHICK program. She provides a clear picture of the big difference K-State Research and Extension professionals can make by helping connect people to resources to help them deal with complex financial documentation – especially those who are approaching or beyond retirement age. She also talks about how her office helps with community needs assessments and gives us a couple glimpses into the more humorous aspects of being an extension professional.
