POISE Foundation receives $250,000 in grants from Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield in support of initiatives aimed at strengthening Black community

PITTSBURGH (Aug. 14, 2014) – In support of programming and activities that re-assert “family” as a core institution in the re-development of Pittsburgh’s Black community, Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield provided $250,000 in grants that will benefit POISE Foundation’s Strengthening Black Families (SBF) and Sustainable Black Community (SBC) initiatives.

Black families living in the Greater Pittsburgh Region experience significant disparities in the areas of health, education, employment, family structure and income compared to white families, as evidenced in a 2007 report on racial disparities by the University of Pittsburgh’s Center for Race and Social Problems (CRSP). According to a 2012 PittsburghTODAY Quality of Life Survey, the rate of African Americans in our community living without health insurance is 60 percent higher than other racial groups, and unemployment rates are twice the rate of other demographics.

Soul Pitt Letter to the Editor

Big thanks to all the individuals that take the time to write us to express their gratitude for what we do, and of course to the staff at Soul Pitt that made it happen. Comments like these make it all worthwhile:

http://soulpittmedia.com/images/craigdawson2013.jpgIt is my pleasure to THANK YOU and SOUL PITT for the “loan” of Brother Craig Dawson for our 30th Annual Scholarship Banquet. He was nothing short of spectacular. His message was spiritual, informative, and encouraging to our youngsters. Most of the adults in attendance remember Craig, and his brothers and sister, as well mannered, well dressed, determined neighborhood kids. So although we expected what we heard, we were pleased and proud that he delivered. He kept God in his message and the young people’s attention. Those of us who mentor our youth know that’s not an easy task.   It is our mission to give a little financial help toward secondary education; and invite Upper Ohio Valley Alumni to bring an encouraging message to our youth. Thanks to Bro. Dawson; our mission was accomplished. — The George C. Smith Scholarship Committee, Steubenville, Ohio

GATEWAY HEALTH JOINS THE FIGHT TO END HUNGER WITH “SCOUTING FOR FOOD”

Hunger costs the State of Pennsylvania $6 billion every year

PITTSBURGH, June 24 – Gateway HealthSM received the Growth Award from the Laurel Highlands Council Boy Scouts of America for surpassing  last year’s food drive contribution in their company-wide Scouting For Food Campaign.

The Scouting for Food Campaign is the largest food drive campaign in Allegheny Country and runs throughout the month of April. Each year, local companies, as well as community organizations and families, are encouraged to hold independent food drives. The Pittsburgh Community Food Banks assists with delivering the collected food items to the appropriate centers and distributing food and other supplies to local families and individuals facing food insecurity issues, many of which are also Gateway members.

“It was a great honor to represent Gateway Health at the awards luncheon and during the campaign. The Boy Scouts support Gateway’s mission of caring for others and echo our mission of meeting individuals where they live,” stated Harry Manley, Sr. Community and Program Development Specialist, Gateway Health, who was the coordinator of Gateway’s 2014 Scouting for Food campaign.

About Gateway Health SM:

Gateway HealthSM is a nationally ranked managed care organization that delivers quality and affordable healthcare to Medicaid and Medicare eligible individuals. Gateway Health serves the needs of at risk and vulnerable citizens. Gateway members have benefitted from services such as disease management, health and wellness programs and preventive care.

Meet the Nurses Week Nominees!

Mary Fran Reidell

Barbara Johnson says, “My colleague Mary Fran makes a great nurse because she is so honest, genuine and caring. She is an amazing listener and looks at any health concern from a holistic perspective. When she has a diagnosis in mind she explores each possibility and is very mindful of issues that may cause great anxiety for the patient. She is always learning and has been involved in many cases that required culturally relevant care as well as cases where mental disorders needed consideration. I would trust her completely to advise me on any health issue because her work is informed, respectful, wise and lovingly considerate.

http://soulpittmedia.com/images/nursesweek/Ragsdale.JPG
Kimberly Ragsdale

Kayla Bowyer says, “I’ve known Kim for over 12 years and she has always been a hard working person who was determined to be successful. She followed her dream of becoming a nurse and is now living that dream. As a young, Black professional nurse, Kim is an excellent role model for other young aspiring nurses. A nurse’s hard work sometimes goes unnoticed or unappreciated, and Kim deserves to be recognized for the work she does to help keep the people of Pittsburgh healthy.” Click Here for Full Details

Photo Review: Macy’s Fashion Show on April 12, 2014

SPRING IS HERE! SPRING IS HERE! SPRING IS “FINALLY” HERE!
Review by Winter D. Epps  (Click photos for larger view)

The birds are chirping and the sun is shining. You awake with that fresh morning face, ready to begin your day. Look in your closet and you think what to wear? Well, I hit the scene Saturday April 12th for Macy’s Spring Fashion show at their South Hills Village store. To my delight and those of the audience we were treated to a parade of fashion forward clothing just in time for the spring season.

Kiya Tomlin, fashion designer and wife of Steeler’s coach Mike Tomlin, hosted this year’s Macy’s Spring Fashion Show and there were a lot of great looks to enhance your spring wardrobe!

Trending now:

  • Floral, abstract and animal print
  • Pink with black and white detail
  • Graphic prints
  • All shades of pink

After the fashion I had a chance to speak with Kiya Tomlin to get some quick insight on her clothing line and her thoughts for the spring wardrobe.

Bright colors and floral pastels are Kiya’s key pieces to a fun spring wardrobe. She said, “Just like spring flowers. Floral brings energy and makes things come to life.”

She would love to see the return of hats, like the ones rocked at the fashion show, saying, “They are always comfortable.”

Kiya has a studio space in East Liberty on Broad Street; here she meets her clients to create custom made clothing for them. She is gradually moving toward selling her items wholesale for retail shops to purchase.  Her custom pieces are all about comfort. To check out her designs visit Kiya’s website at www.kiyatomlinpittsburgh.com.

Visit a Macy’s near you to shop their spring/summer clothing lines.
