Passaic Regional Initiative to Drive Empowerment Community Upliftment Purpose (PRIDE CUP) Culture of

(Paterson, NJ - July 24, 2017) The PRIDE CUP Culture of Health Festival is an initiative that will be spearheaded by the Passaic County Department of Health. The festival will utilize the concept of edutainment (using entertaining venues to educate and share public health information) to engage, bring together, and empower diverse populations in the community. The initiative will pursue a coalition of service providers to participate that address public health issues through various approaches. These will include medical, mental health, addiction, social, educational, recreational, immigration, legal justice, business and economic services. Service providers will be encouraged to share information about the services that they provide and have avenues that they present to facilitate how community members can gain access to these services. We will have multicultural performers to encourage and generate participation by a broad segment of the population to improve cross-cultural understanding and relationships, and to foster greater community cohesiveness and empowerment. The goal of the PRIDE CUP Culture of Health Festival is to design and test a framework that can be carried forth to improve the health of the community from a multifaceted perspective while addressing issues of health disparities and social justice.

This event will take place on Tuesday, August 1, 2017 (Rain Date: August 8, 2017) from 11:00 am-2:00 pm, located at William J. Bate Memorial Court House Plaza (between Grand and Ward Streets), Paterson, NJ.  There will be food, live music and a chance to dance.   It is free and open to the general public.
