The 2013 eXtension Fellowship has been awarded to Megan O’Neil a Senior Agent at the University of Maryland Extension. O’Neil’s project, Health Insurance Literacy–Ask an Expert, will focus on using the eXtension Ask an Expert application as a tool for a needs assessment and educational delivery of information on health insurance. She will work in partnership with the multi-state Health Insurance Literacy Initiative. This is an exciting and timely project that will leverage the expertise of Extension faculty using eXtension technology and social media.
