Events and Educational Programs

UPMC Mercy Trauma Center annually hosts an event to support and encourage fellowship among our patients and their families and promotes educational and injury prevention programs in the community.

UPMC Mercy Trauma Survivors Day Celebration

Each year in May, UPMC Mercy Trauma Center helps to observe National Trauma Awareness Month and National Trauma Survivors Day through its Trauma Survivors Day Celebration. At this special event, trauma survivors treated during the last year are invited to reunite with members of their care team, including doctors and nurses. The celebration includes a range of activities and a luncheon.
