CENTER FOR RURAL HEALTH PRACTICE RECEIVES WALKWORKS GRANT

CENTER FOR RURAL HEALTH PRACTICE RECEIVES WALKWORKS GRANT

BRADFORD, Pa. – The Center for Rural Health Practice at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford has received a $15,700 grant to identify walking routes including trails in McKean County.

The grant will fund a program called “WalkWorks,” which will identify and promote walking routes in four communities: Bradford, Kane, Port Allegany and Smethport.

“The overall goal is to increase physical activity for young people and adults through community-based walking programs, reap the benefits of physical activity and improve the overall health of our communities,” said Dr. Youmasu Siewe, director of the center.

The walkways must be no more than two miles long and accessible to the community. The project will be ongoing through February 2012 and will allow the center to hire a part-time coordinator to administer the grant.

The grant is part of a larger grant awarded by the Centers for Disease Control and the Pennsylvania Department of Health to the Pitt Graduate School of Public Health.

The public health school will provide the Bradford coordinator with training and assist with signs and publicity for the designated routes.

For more information on WalkWorks, contact the center at (814)362-5050.
