North Side health and wellness program to be created with $250K grant

Wednesday, November 1, 2017

A partnership of Pittsburgh organizations has been chosen by a national health initiative to develop a health and wellness program for North Side residents with a $250,000 grant.

The BUILD Health Challenge, a national program that uses community partnerships to improve public health, awarded the grant, according to a news release.

The Allegheny County Health Department, Allegheny General Hospital, Highmark, the Buhl Foundation and Project Destiny will work together during the two-year program using the grant funding in order to create a health and wellness model called the "Center for Lifting Up everyBody," or CLUB.

The model, which focuses on various social determinants of health for improved community and individual wellbeing, will support what began in 2013 as One Northside, an effort to build a healthier community by connecting residents with health and wellness resources.
