Reflections on Family and Consumer Sciences – Article Published by Extension Educator

Kudos to Patrice Powers-Barker, educator, family and consumer sciences, in the Lucas County office of OSU Extension, who will have an article published in an upcoming issue of the Journal of Family & Consumer Sciences. It will be a short reflection on the history – and future success – of FCS. The Journal of Family & Consumer Sciences is the official publication of the American Association of Family & Consumer Sciences (AAFCS). Each issue of the Journal contains scholarly peer-reviewed articles; practical information geared toward family and consumer sciences professionals; and news and information about AAFCS. The journal features knowledge gained from the research and academic arenas and focuses on how this knowledge can be applied by practitioners in the field.
