MoveSTroNg is an eight-week exercise and nutrition program that teaches older adults with chronic diseases how to perform resistance and balance exercises that can be easily integrated into their day. The program also includes behaviour change strategies, social interaction and education to increase protein intake and promote healthy nutrition. The MoveSTroNg program is being evaluated in four cities across Ontario (Sudbury, Guelph, Cambridge and Kitchener) in three distinct settings; a retirement home, the YMCA and a family health team.
