The Health Discovery Leadership Circle (HDLC) is UPMC’s leadership giving society.

The HDLC honors donors who have:

  • Made annual gifts totaling $1,000 or more in support of research and patient care initiatives.
  • Helped us continue to transform the world of medicine through their spirit of giving.

HDLC members are on the front lines with us in our mission to improve health care — both in our communities and worldwide.

UPMC’s doctors, affiliated researchers, and staff are truly changing the future of health care by:

  • Harnessing the power of technology.
  • Translating science into cures.
  • Advancing the pace of groundbreaking medicine.

This would not be possible without the generous support of our most dedicated patients and friends.
