This issue of The Forum is exciting in its diversity and depth. The authors have written articles that will interest and stimulate the thinking of those who focus on older adults and quality of life issues, family resource management, consumer satisfaction, food and nutrition programming, family relationships, and identified ways to address and promote effective collaboration.
We are in a time of increased family stress, higher food prices, rising costs of gasoline, and problems in the housing market with increasing numbers of home repossessions, etc. The information in this journal also will provide the reader with increased knowledge and tools to deal with these and other challenges. Enjoy!
