10th Annual Health & Wellness Weekend

The Health & Wellness Weekend was conceived by local businessman, Roland Scott.  Ron was an avid runner and a health advocate.  He envisioned a day where African American families could focus on their collective physical health and well-being.  Ron, along with others, believed that addressing the rising levels of obesity and other preventable chronic illnesses and conditions that many of our families are experiencing would be very beneficial.


Ron’s dreams become a reality through a partnership with Thelma Lovette YMCA, PA State Troopers (Robin Mungo), and the Poise Foundation.  Together we crafted what would later become the Health Expo For African American Living (H.E.A.L). 


Health Expo for African American Living (H.E.A.L)

H.E.A.L Day was created to bring over 50 neighborhoods and over 70,000 residents together.  This year marks our 10th Anniversary for Health & Wellness Weekend.  H.E.A.L Day will take place along Centre Ave and will consist of a variety of activities for people of all ages, such as: Employment Resource Center, community exhibitors, free food, games, face painting, entertainment, prize giveaways and much more!


We are excited to celebrate our 10th Annual Health & Wellness Weekend on August 18th – 19th, 2023.  This weekend is strategically designed to unite various communities throughout the City of Pittsburgh for the purpose of building relationships and engaging in communal activities.  The 2023 Health & Wellness embodies a holistic approach, focusing on the enhancement of 5 Pillars of health:  mental, physical, spiritual, environmental, and economic health.  Our partnership with numerous community members, businesses, and organization has enable us to prepare events and activities that will, educate, and empower.  This life-altering experience will provide resources and opportunities for people to make simple, lifestyle changes.  We, as community, can live healthier by promoting awareness, teaching new concepts, being more active, and utilizing resources that are available to help individuals to make sustainable changes to improve their quality of life. 

Together all things are possible and through Faith, Hope, and Love we will transform ourselves, our households, and our communities! We invite you to join us and share in this transformational weekend!
