Oakland University awarded $400,000 for Pontiac health programs | Local News – The Oakland Press

The Michigan Health Endowment has awarded a two-year, $400,000 grant to the OU/Pontiac Initiative to expand collaborative efforts to promote healthy living in the city, according to the university.

The grant will support services that connect community members to non-clinical services relating to healthy eating and active living. The program, entitled Prescription for a Healthy Pontiac, will be directed by two Oakland University professors.

A special focus will be given to working with families and seniors, hosting integrated health education sessions on topics like cooking on a budget, healthy eating as a lifestyle, stress management and relaxation techniques.

Three clinic sites, Gary Bernstein Community Health Clinic, Honor Community Health and St. Joseph Mercy Oakland's Mercy Place Clinic, will join with the Healthy Pontiac, We Can! Coalition and the Oakland County Health Division to support the program.
