About Women for Healthy Rural Living
Our mission is to advance and promote the health and well-being of the woman, her family, and her community.
Because women make the majority of the family’s health care decisions, WHRL was founded as a guide to help women and their families on a path to physical, emotional, social, and spiritual wellness.
WHRL seeks to create an inclusive, wellness-oriented community that is active, well-nourished, connected to nature and one another. Our goal is to provide an equitable and accessible path to health.
We accomplish this through programming like Incredible Edible Milbridge, Milbridge Commons, Outdoor Women Lead, BoneBuilders, Yoga, and other health and wellness-related programs, workshops, and events.
