Strong Women is an exercise program for middle-aged and older women. The program is based on years of research on how strength training and proper nutrition improve the health of women of all ages. This strength training program has been found to improve bone density, reduce falls, improve arthritis symptoms, and increase flexibility and strength. Call Dawn Doperalski, UW-Extension Menominee County/Nation Family Living Educator, at 715-799-6226, ext 5714 to sign up or for additional information.
