Healthy Babies Zone Wilkinsburg and their partners are hosting a Turkey Trot. Join them for a community walk followed by a food box and a Turkey giveaway! The 1st 25 people to register and complete the walk will receive a $25 Giant Eagle gift card and an HBZ swag bag kit and food box to prepare you for the holiday.
The Healthy Babies Zone (HBZ) Wilkinsburg project was modeled after the Best Babies Zone (BBZ) framework to establish a community structure that ensures babies are born into a community that will enable them to thrive and reach their full potential.
The BBZ initiative was created to address perinatal health outcomes by focusing efforts on the social and economic determinants of health and the promotion of health equity and their impact on health outcomes. The core partners of HBZ are Healthy Start Inc., Pittsburgh, Allegheny County Health Department, Maternal and Child Health Division, The University of Pittsburgh Centers for Health Equity, Trying Together, Women for a Healthy Environment, and Hosanna House.
