Women's Health Initiative
Lawrence County's obesity rate has been increasing over the last several years. Obesity can cause serious diseases and health problems. The Women's Health Initiative began in the spring of 2021 as a way to help Lawrence County Women who could inspire and challenge one another on the journey to being healthy.
In the spring of 2022, we began a program called "One Step at a Time" with the thought that it's never too early or too late to work toward being the healthiest you. Participants meet once a week to walk. Other exercise options include:
---Free exercise class (ReFit), held Tuesday and Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at First Baptist Church in Ironton
---Free yoga class held at the Ohio University Community Center at 1509 So. 9th St. We have partnered with Eternal Yoga to provide this opportunity..
To more information, or to register, please call Peyton Arden at 740-532-3962. You may also register here.
This program is made possible through the Maternal Child Program at the Ohio Department of Health.
