Mahoning Matters | “For the Health of It” To Create a Healthy Community, All We Have to Do Is Ask “How Can I Help?”

2022-08-25T18:12:11+00:00

ICYMI Mahoning Matters | "For the Health of It" To Create a Healthy Community, All We Have to Do Is Ask "How Can I Help?" Health is a small word that says a lot.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has adapted this definition for use in its own materials: “Health is more than the absence of disease; it is a resource that allows people to realize [...]

ICYMI Mahoning Matters | "For the Health of It" Parks are infrastructure. Let’s cultivate our common ground July is National Parks and Recreation Month. In spite of spending most of my unobligated time in a park, I somehow went most of my life not knowing that. Now that I know, I am celebrating this important recognition each minute of July’s long, hot 31 days. The National Recreation and Parks Association shares that National Parks and Recreation Month was established almost 40 years ago in 1985 to “promote building strong, vibrant and resilient communities through the power of parks [...]

Moment of the Month April/May 2022: Food, Framing, and Freedom

Moment of the Month April/May 2022: Food, Framing, and Freedom Changing the Language and Approach to Addressing Food Apartheid & Celebrating Good Food News Perhaps two of the most well-known, wide-ranging, and difficult to overcome social and environmental factors that impact health are oppressive forces (like racism) and barriers to basic needs (like healthy foods).

Because of this, these [...]
