LSU AgCenter PSE Quick Reference Guide

Although the LSU AgCenter PSE Quick Reference guide was originally developed for LSU AgCenter Extension agents and educators to use when exploring which PSE (policy, systems, and environmental) interventions are suitable for their communities and allowable with funding from their grant or program, this guide can serve as a useful resource for other Extension programs, heath-focus organizations, and private citizens interested in implementing PSE changes. This is not an exhaustive document, so there may be opportunities that are not listed in this guide. Download the LSU AgCenter PSE Quick Reference Guide here!
