Out There OSU Extension StrongWomen™

Keeping older women strong reduces the risk of fractures from falls and helps older adults maintain their independence. Extension Family and Community Health faculty train local volunteers leaders who guide their StrongWomen™ groups two to three times per week.

StrongWomen™, one of the many diverse programs offered by OSU Extension Service, is a national evidence-based community exercise program for older women to improve muscle strength and balance. 

Extension Family and Community Health have over 20 programs working in 16 communities reaching over 400 Oregonians.

Oregon State University Extension puts information and expertise within reach of all Oregonians so they may thrive in their communities, be lifted by growing economies, and share pride in the flourishing ecosystems of Oregon.
