The inaugural Head to Toe Health and Beauty Showcase was a one-stop opportunity for women to get a plethora of information about how to get — and remain — healthy.

Friday's event at Youghiogheny Country Club was the first collaborative project for the Women's Leadership Group of the Mon River Fleet Health Improvement Plan Partnerships and the UPMC McKeesport Women's Health Center.

“We've been working on this for four or five months,” McKeesport Hospital Foundation executive director Michele Matuch said. “This is the first event and it's so unique, but we are the leaders in doing things that are unique. This is all about women and trying to make them healthier.”

The day-long event included health care presentations led by doctors on a variety of topics including skin care, basic health tips and foot care. There were demonstrations of healthy cooking by Barbara Knezovich, and Zumba and Yoga by the YMCA of McKeesport. Information was available on a variety of women-specific health issues and attendees could seek answers to questions at the Ask the Doctor and Ask the Pharmacist tables. Women had a chance to relax with a five-minute chair massage or have their skin analyzed for facials.

A variety of vendors took part, offering everything from essential oils and aromatherapy and reflexology to jewelry.

Participating was the Jodie Matta-Dillinger Wig Center.

Several models meandered through the crowd showing off the latest warm-weather fashions available at Kohl's.

There were hors d'oeuvres and desserts offered on the deck for those who wanted a little break from the festivities.

Jim Spindler, director of Community Outreach and Special Projects at UPMC McKeesport, said the Head to Toe Health and Beauty Showcase was designed to focus on women. “This focuses on the entire person — mind, heart, spirit. The doctors we have here address health issues and the vendors address beauty. Our mission is to enhance women's sense of beauty so they can be as alive as possible and I think we did that with this event.”
