The Strong Women Program was developed by Miriam Nelson, PhD, Tufts University professor.  It is based upon research on how strength training and proper nutrition improve the health of women of all ages.  Research shows that strength training improves bone density, reduces falls, improves arthritis symptoms, and increases flexibility and strength.
