The Extension StrongBodies Program is based on the StrongWomen Program that was created by Professors Miriam E. Nelson and Rebecca Seguin. StrongBodies will catalyze positive change in people of all ages to live stronger, healthier lives by providing knowledge, inspiration, access to programs, and ongoing support. Ashland County partners with Douglas, Bayfield, and Iron Counties to bring people of all ages together virtually to learn about fitness and nutrition!
