Women Stay Active, Healthy Through NMSU Cooperative Extension Service Program
Middle-aged women are often at risk for a litany of ailments – be it porous bones or excess fat and diabetes. The Cooperative Extension Service program at NMSU aims to remedy some of those problems for women and men. Research shows that women who exercise and practice strength training have improved bone density, reduced risk for heart disease and depression, and enjoy improved sleep and vitality. This program can be a template for use across the country in rural and urban areas where men and women can comfortably go to improve their own health and wellbeing.
