-- Visitors to Savannah's Lake Mayer Park will soon have a new place to get resources that promote better health and quality of life.
The first of two "Healthy Hub" sites will be unveiled at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, December 1 at the park, located at 1850 E. Montgomery Crossroads in Savannah. Community leaders, along with representatives from the Savannah College of Art and Design, the YMCA of Coastal Georgia and Healthy Savannah will be in attendance. Lake Mayer is managed by the Chatham County Parks and Recreation division.
"Healthy Hub is a place to go for resources that promote better health and quality of life for all. You can take or add items like books, pamphlets, canned food, and other health resources to share with the community," said Nichele Hoskins, assistant director of Healthy Savannah. "It's a little library with a healthy twist."
The project that became Healthy Hub was the collective brainchild of nine SCAD students – Chaitanya Ahuja, Lara Isaacson, Hanjun Lin, Xichen Liu, Julia Moore, Shruti Narkar, Sarah Prifitera and Fen Zhu – who developed it during their 2020 Sustainable Practices in Design class. Their professor, Scott Boylston, continued working after the class ended to fine-tune the design.
