Harrisburg launches Health initiative

Harrisburg Mayor Eric Papenfuse announced an effort to promote health and wellness in the city, Healthy Harrisburg will be held in the atrium during the final two Thursdays in July. 

The city is teaming with Pinnacle Health to help people gain control of their health. 

Pinnacle Health will have a kiosk to provide brochures, fact sheets and information on health services that are available in the region and blood pressure and cholesterol checks will also be available. 

The effort will also focus on obesity, spotlighting the growing problem among children.

Information will be available on the importance and the impact of food choices and eating habits.

Residents with low or no insurance are encouraged to participate and if a follow-up is recommended, Pinnacle Health officials will provide options for those who may not have a doctor or healthcare coverage.
