Did you know the way a community takes care of its elders and the walkability of a small town has direct correlations  to quality of life?  On this episode of Did You Know, we visit with Abbie Gaffey, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Community and Economic Development Specialist.  Abbie shares her expertise in community development along with the findings of a recent rural sociology study called What Drives Quality of Life in Iowa Small Towns.  The study by Dr. David Peters, Associate Professor at Iowa State University, can be found and downloaded for free here.  To find additional resources and specialist information for ISU Extension and Outreach Community and Economic Development go to https://www.extension.iastate.edu/communities/ .
