ABC to film ‘Everyday Health’ at Pittsburgh Salon

30 Aug

ABC will be in town Thursday, September 1st, 2011 to film a new reality TV show entitled Everyday Health. They will film at a salon cut-a-thon that will aim to spread awareness of psoriasis and get the message across that this autoimmune condition is NOT contagious. Proceeds will benefit the National Psoraisis Foundation.

Newlywed, reality starlet, and entrepreneur Kim Kardashian was recently diagnosed with Psoriasis, bringing some more awareness to the condition; and pro golfer Phil Mickelson lives with psoriatic arthritis, a related condition.

If you wish to take part in the cut-a-thon (remember — you may end up on TV, so be mindful of whether or not that is something that you are comfortable with) call 412.471.1575.

Here is more information from the National Psoriasis Foundation regarding the event:

 

 

“Join ABC’s “Everyday Health” and get a free haircut!

People with psoriasis often face discrimination at hair salons because others fear their disease is contagious. Show these people that you can’t catch psoriasis.

Join ABC on Thursday, Sept. 1, for the filming of a new reality show, “Everyday Health,” at Verve Wellness for a special “cut-a-thon” fundraiser to benefit the National Psoriasis Foundation. Get a haircut between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. and you could be on national TV showing your support for the millions of Americans with psoriatic diseases.

Thanks to the generosity of ABC, anyone with psoriasis in the Pittsburgh area can get their hair cut for free during this event.

Call Verve Wellness at 412.471.1575 to make an appointment during Thursday’s cut-a-thon.”
