What is a…

Tele-Town Hall

A Tele-Town Hall is a talk show that you listen to on your phone. You can dial in to become part of the audience, or you can stay on the line if we happen to call you. UPMC Tele-Town Hall experts answer your questions about cancer, sports medicine, cardiology, and other specialties. To ask questions, dial *3 to connect with an operator (you won’t become part of the show).


A podcast is a recording that you can download or stream to your personal device and listen to whenever you want. Some UPMC Tele-Town Halls eventually become podcasts, so you won’t miss out if you couldn’t make it the first time.

Alive & Well

The UPMC Alive & Well Series is an ongoing course of free health education discussions, now available virtually. Register online and join the community to learn from UPMC experts about a variety of health and wellness topics.
