Beginning on Friday, May 13 and running through November, the Northside Leadership Conference will be hosting “A Place To Start,” a health and activity table at the Farmers Market on the East Common at Cedar Avenue.
Allana Morrison, Allegheny General Hospital Partnership Coordinator for NSLC, said the activity table will be in operation every Friday during May and June, and every other Friday thereafter from 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The activities will vary from week to week, and Morrison said she is aiming to cover a broad spectrum of health related topics.
“We will be offering a variety of health events ranging from “Walk with a Doc’” to bike riding, line dancing, exercising, and healthy eating demonstrations,” Morrison said.
There will also be free health screenings, snacks, and prize give-a-ways.
“It’s an initiative to get the Northside healthy, moving, and active,” Morrison said. “We are very excited to assist Northside families with adopting and adapting to a healthy new lifestyle in 2016.”
