Title: 
West Homestead Walks Together Community Walking App
Client:  West Homestead Borough
Mentor: Dr. Afsaneh Doryab
The many physical benefits of walking are commonly known – improved circulation, lowered blood pressure, improved bone density, enhanced muscle tone, better sleep, increased stamina. In older adults, regular walking has been shown to slow age-related memory decline, and lower the incidence of dementia and Alzheimers. And of course, for the more than two-thirds of adults who are overweight or obese, walking can contribute to weight loss and weight maintenance. However, at least one study has found that Americans only walk about half of the recommended 10,000 steps per day.
As a “Live Well Allegheny” Community, West Homestead has been exploring more ways to get residents outside and moving. In addition to a planned non-motorized boat ramp on the Monongahela, Borough officials would like to see more people walking in the community.
