beef to a healthy diet, demonstration techniques, and presentation tips and food safety.
A cooking school manual was developed for the hands-on schools with a focus on
preparation skills, nutrition, food safety practices and economics of beef in the diet. A
youth curriculum was included in the program. Both the youth and adult programs
included an evaluation component. Training on the Adult program was conducted in
2004 and on the Youth component in 2005.
Pork Cooking School Curriculum, (2001-2002) (Brown, B., Sawatzky, R., and Spalding,
K.)
Curriculum development and implementation was funded by Oklahoma Pork Producers
and designed to increase cooking skills of participants. One-day schools took place
across the state for both adults and youth. A pre-/posttest evaluation component was
included.
“Food Safety for Seniors” (2001-2002) (Brown, B.)
The curriculum designed to teach seniors correct food safety practices was developed
using funding provided by a USDA, Food Safety & Quality National Initiative Plan of
Work Project Grant. The project focused on four areas where research has found seniors
fail to use the safest practices: thawing foods safely, storing leftovers safely, storing large
amounts of hot food safely, and grilling meats safely. A series of four short lessons was
developed. Each lesson included: a videotape on the topic, a participant handout which
was made available in a large print and half-sheet envelop size formats (hard copy and on
CD), visuals with script (PowerPoint format) which was distributed to county educators
as both a hard copy and as a computer CD, an evaluation tool for each lesson (hard copy
and on CD). Twenty-three County Educators received training that included education
on why seniors are at greater risk for foodborne illness than younger adults, which
behaviors put them at greater risk, a review of lesson components, and instruction on use
of the evaluation tool. One-hundred-seventy-three evaluations were returned. Of those
only six were for the “Grilling Meat Safely” lesson. This was probably because the
11
evaluation period was between December and March, not the grilling season. Since the
sample size was so small, no results were discussed. A summary of results showed: most
participants (63.4% of 41) of “Thawing Meat Safely” believed they thawed meat safely
prior to the lesson. Of those that did not (36.6%), 40% indicated they definitely planned
to change and 46.7% probably would to a safer method of thawing. Most participants
(76.9% of 91) of “Storing Leftovers” believed they handled leftovers safely prior to the
lesson. Of those that did not, 52.4% definitely planned to change the way they handled
leftovers to reduce their risk of foodborne illness; 19.0% probably would change; 19.0%
would think about changing their handling of leftovers; and 9.5% planned no changes.
More than half (54.3% of 35) of participants of “Cooling Hot Foods” found the need to
change the way they cool food to reduce the risk of foodborne illness. Of those, 73.7%
definitely planned to change the way they cool food after attending the lesson; 21.1%
indicated they probably would change; and 5.3% would think about making a change.
Healthy Living A-Z Impact Program (2000-2006) (Brown, B. and team)
• The Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service “Healthy Living A-Z” Impact Program
educated Oklahoman youth and adults on the 5-A-Day message (fruit and vegetable
intake) and safe food handling techniques. The goal of the "Healthy Living A-Z"
Impact Program was to encourage increased fruit and vegetable intake and the
practice of safe food handling techniques thereby reducing the risk of diet related
diseases.
• The Program reached 2,554 Oklahomans, 988 youth and 1,566 adults. Important
dietary improvements observed among youth and adults who participated in the
included a statistically significant:
o Increase in fruit intake: 24% increase in consuming the recommended 2
fruit servings per day, average number of fruit servings increased from 1.4
to 2.1 servings per day
o Increase in vegetable intake: 18% increase in consuming the
recommended 3 vegetable servings per day, average number of vegetable
servings increased from 1.8 to 2.5 servings per day
• Statistically significant improvements in safe food handling practices were observed
including: 22% increase in "hand washing" behavior score, 17% increase in "washing
fresh fruits and vegetables" behavior score, 19% increase in "using a separate cutting
board for fruits and vegetables to avoid cross contamination" behavior score
• Statistically significant increases in eating new fruits or vegetables and trying new
fruit or vegetable preparation methods were observed including: 25% increase in
“eating a new fruit or vegetable in the last two weeks, 30% increase in “preparing
fruits or vegetables in a new way in the last two weeks.
Food Safety in the Home—Core In-service Training (2002, updated 2007) (Brown, B.)
Educators were provided information on the basic principals of food safety, including an
overview of the situation, common pathogens, and in-depth look at how food safety
impacts the elderly, practices that reduce risk, HACCP, and resources available including
the Fight BAC! program. Training was done by lecture and laboratory.
Food Preservation for Master Consumer Advisors (2002) (Brown, B.)
12
Program was developed to train volunteers to work in counties on home food
preservation projects. Volunteers were trained in Oklahoma and Tulsa Counties.
Oklahom*A*Syst water quality program (1996-2000) (Brown, B., Kizer, et al)
The program was designed to increase the safety and quality of water for those who rely
on well water as their source of drinking water. It consisted of two tracks, Oklahoma
Farm & Ranch*A*Syst for those with agriculture production on their property and
Home*A*Syst for rural residents without such activity on their land. Presented poster at
the Society for Nutrition Education national meeting in Albuquerque, July, 1998.
Presented information on Oklahom*A*Syst to FCE state meeting, Stillwater, OK, 1998.
Provided leadership for National Drinking Water Week in Oklahoma in May 1999
including one television appearance. Provided information on water during disaster
preparedness in-service to county educators that included a handout on water safety and
lesson materials. Provided Ag. Communications Services information on water safety
following tornado disaster May 3, 1999. Provided in-service to 60 county educators,
1996.
Healthy Living Impact Program (1995-1999) (Brown, B. and team)
Participants in the eight session series (each included a teacher’s guide, activities,
handouts and visuals) learned to prepare healthful meals and the importance of exercise
and fitness. Evaluation average blood cholesterol levels were decreased from 218 mg/dl
to 206 mg/dl. Over 70% decreased LDL-cholesterol. About 66% decreased body weight
an average of four pounds even though weight loss was not a goal of the program. Over
50% decreased diastolic blood pressure and about 60% had a decrease in fasting glucose
and in fasting triglycerides. Results indicated a significant decrease in the number of
servings of fats and sweets eaten by participants after the eight session course. L There
was also an increase, though not significant, in the average number of servings from the
breads, cereals, rice and pasta group. An Active Living Component was developed in
1996. It consisted of eight lessons about getting started, aerobic endurance, muscular
strength and endurance, flexibility, weight management, safety issues, finding time and
tips to stick with the program, and a lesson on putting it all together. Home Economists
in 30 counties received in-service on the program. Served on the design team, and the
steering, curriculum and evaluation committees.
National Child Care Network (NCCN) (completed 1998) (Brown, B.)
Completed project in November 1998 when funder discontinued project. Project was
discontinued prior to evaluation. Completed 36 segments ranging in length from 6
minutes, 37 seconds to 20 minutes, 21 seconds. Segments were broadcast directly into 40
daycare centers for use as in-service education for staff and as an educational tool for
those staff to use with parents of children enrolled in their centers. Reference or resource
was developed for each segment. Some were handout sheets on the topic, others were
web sites for viewers to access for more information.
Public Service Announcements 1997-1998 (Brown, B.)
For the “Tasty Safety Hints” television public service announcement campaign two
topics for PSA’s were chosen after completion of market research. The topics for the 30-
13
second PSA’s were cooking ground meat well done (for summer release) and leaving
food at room temperature no longer than two hours (for November release). PSA’s were
produced by Full Circle Communications who also helped evaluate the reach of the
pieces once released to the media. County educators were notified about the project at inservice trainings in April and May, 1998. Healthy Living team members served at county
contacts for media. A toll free 877 number was established for consumers to call for
additional information (a print piece). Radio scripts based on the television pieces were
recorded by the same actors were developed along with news releases.
Food Safety for School Food Service Employees, 1996 (Brown, B.)
Developed curriculum consisting of 5 lessons with background for trainer, learner
handouts, quiz, posters, evaluation form and information on working with public schools.
Provided in-service training to county educators from 19 counties.
