HIP-Cuyahoga teamed up with 93.1 WZAK’s DJ Haz Matt to spread the news about HIP-Cuyahoga on Saturday at the Family Unity in the Park festival at Luke Easter Park, who is working every day to help make Cuyahoga County a healthier place to live. Haz interviewed Ms. Dee, a community health ambassador for HIP-Cuyahoga, who shared information about the Chronic Disease Self Management Program, finding hidden salt in food to help control blood pressure, the Good Food Here program, and encouraged others to get involved.

DJ Haz Matt and Ms Felecia, a local zumba instructor helped encourage the festival participants to get up and get moving. Zumba is one of many activities that are offered at #healthmattershere sites throughout Cuyahoga County.

HIP-Cuyahoga met over 500 people this past weekend!

HIP-Cuyahoga was thrilled to meet (and give a healthy snack to) over 500 people at the past weekend’s events. On Saturday, HIP-Cuyahoga celebrated with the City of East Cleveland, as the Salvation Army hosted a block party, that included music, food, performances, and a resource fair. On Sunday, we went to support the open streets concelt with CiCLEvia Central. Over a mile of Community College and Quincy were blocked off from automobiles, so that people could participate in non-auto activities like zumba, walking, dancing, bicycling and more! HIP-Cuyahoga helped spread the word from our growing group of partners and community residents, about good food here stores, shared use sites, how to become a community health champion, where to get produce from a farmers’ market, and how to get involved. This weekend, we’ll be at Wade Oval as part of the All City Community Celebration, hosted by Cecil Shorts III. HIP-Cuyahoga will be there from 12:00 – 3:00 pm – stop by and see us!
