Ross Township has successfully joined Live Well Allegheny! We are now joined with Allegheny County and its comprehensive, innovative strategy on wellness. This involves a coordinated, local effort to improving the health of our Township residents. In order to improve the physical health, mental wellness, personal and community safety, prevention and preparedness, nutrition, well-being, quality of life, education, standard of living, and more, there must be a cultural change as to initiate a behavior change among the residents. Click to view Live Well Allegheny Website and utilize their health tools! 

Ross is in the process of identifying issues, such as childhood obesity due to a lack of physical activity, as to strategize how to implement a plan to remedy the found issues. The plan includes a series of phases that occur over a period of time, for living well is a continual process and goal of the community. We as a community must capture the ability to sustain ourselves and livelihood and to do that Ross is targeting areas of emphasis, such as healthy food consumption and social determinants of health. Ross Bicycle and Pedestrian Committee has been formed to create a healthier and safer community. Click here or the box below to go to their website for more information.

The community of Ross has been blessed with 22 park facilities as to aid in the living well mission, as well as the Community Center and schools. Together, we can assist ourselves and one another to foster the best health practices within our community and Allegheny County. The Live Well Plan is coming soon to the website as so you may jump on the train to a better, healthier life!
