Live Healthy Live Well (LHLW) lessons and challenges educate consumers on nutrition, fitness and other wellness issues, increasing awareness and adoption of healthy lifestyle behaviors, and ultimately reducing health care costs. For additional resources visit the OSU's Live Healthy Live Well page.


Challenges are FREE six week on-line email experiences designed to help participants improve their health by encouraging physical activity, enjoying healthy foods, and practicing sound activity suggestions. Those who sign up will receive two weekly e-communications from Ohio State University Extension containing research-based nutrition, health and fitness tips. Tracking logs will be available for download to help participants record their progress.  A pre- and post-online survey will gather comments to improve future challenges. All collected data will be kept confidential.
