Live Well North Fayette
Dear North Fayette Businesses
North Fayette Township has joined Allegheny County's initiative by promoting "Live Well North Fayette." This is an innovative initiative to improve the health and wellness of county residents. By increasing physical activity, eating healthy and managing your own health, you, your family, and friends can live healthier and happier lives. Join us in our efforts to improve the health of Allegheny County and North Fayette Township.
The Live Well Allegheny Campaign aims to improve the health and well-being of Allegheny County residents through a collaborative effort that involves businesses, partners and residents. Our shared vision of creating America's healthiest County can only be achieved through collective action. Local businesses are encouraged to participate so they can contribute to our goal to make Allegheny County the "healthiest county" in the nation.
In January 2014, Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald launched Live Well Allegheny, to promote wellness in Allegheny County. Led by the Board of Health and Allegheny Health Department Director Dr. Karen Hacker, Live Well Allegheny highlights the need to increase physical activity, eat healthy, and be proactive in managing one's health.
This long-term effort focuses on more than just physical health. It also includes mental wellness, personal and community safety, preparedness, efforts to improve well-being and quality of life, education and health literacy. Live Well Allegheny‘s goals will evolve in response to trends, data and statistics brought to bear by the Health Department and its stakeholders.
Live Well Allegheny‘s vision is that through a coordinated effort, the campaign will impact the health and well-being of county residents, improving the health of the entire community.
Looking to the Future
Future plans for Live Well Allegheny include activities in all 130 municipalities, the 90 neighborhoods in the City of Pittsburgh and the 43 school districts that call Allegheny County home. In addition to highlighting activities such as local walks or races, Live Well Allegheny foresees providing communities with information about screenings, fitness activities, healthy cooking demonstrations, tips on stress management and other activities geared to residents of all ages.
North Fayette Township's Role
North Fayette Township has committed to sharing information on wellness campaign events with the broader community, to encourage the voluntary participation of residents, and is also adopting a holistic approach to improving the quality of life for everyone in the township, including not only physical health, but financial empowerment and food security.
North Fayette Township is asking our local businesses to support us in this initiative beginning in 2015 for North Fayette Residents. We believe almost every business has something to offer that will fit in "Live Well North Fayette." Examples:
- Restaurants could offer promotions on their "Healthy Menu Choices" by offering a discount on salads, under 500 calorie meals, etc.
- Salons can offer discounts on services they deem as "healthy services" such as hot stone therapy, massages, etc.
- Chiropractors/Medical Services can offer discounts on Nutritional Services, Vitamins, etc.
- Financial Services can offer discounts for new clients, reviews of current clients, etc.
