NAACP and UPMC Work to Build Healthier Community

In an effort to address the health and employment issues of the community, and to produce a thriving community by building a healthier one, the Pittsburgh unit of the NAACP, in conjunction with the UPMC Center for Engagement and Inclusion, held its 2014 Health and Job Fair on June 7.

The fair offered blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes screenings, cooking demonstrations and nutrition sessions, with doctors on hand to answer questions. Experts addressed myriad issues, including behavioral health, cancer services, living wills and advanced directives, stress and senior living.
