Healthy Community is a community-based outreach education program affiliated with the Outpatient Clinic at UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital. Healthy Community organizes and conducts a busy calendar of education programs, including presentations, classes, and discussions in partnership with community organizations to reach low income and urban women and their families.
Healthy Community goes on-site to community locations offering interactive health programs that are age-appropriate and suitable for group participation. Each program is designed to offer health information useful for women and their families. Our objective is to meet the needs of community members who might not otherwise have opportunities for health and wellness education due to income, transportation, or other barriers.
Healthy Community teams with a wide range of community groups, such as local women’s organizations, educational institutions, businesses, community centers, and shelters. Programs are led by Healthy Community’s own outreach staff, including nurse educators, or by facilitators based at the community agencies. Classes are held on location at our partner agencies or at one of our neighborhood centers in Wilkinsburg, Clairton, Monroeville, and Mt. Oliver.
We actively engage and reach out to community groups as partners in education. Each program is designed for learning through participation in discussions, displays, and interactive presentations. Healthy Community provides the educational materials, instructors, and a flexible program format, which can be adapted to the needs of the requesting group. Community groups publicize the programs in their community and provide any audio/visual equipment.
Our partners are in the Pittsburgh and Allegheny County areas.
Healthy Community offers a broad range of monthly programs to meet the health awareness needs of lower income women and their families. Presentations can be one-time events or ongoing class series. With our community partners, we offer programs designed for adults, parents, children, and teens.
Topics cover subjects such as pregnancy, birth, parenting, home safety, nutrition, growing up for boys and girls, decision-making for teens, environmental health, and topics of interest to older adults. Our programs are always changing and evolving based on our community partnerships and community needs.
There are no class fees, but honoraria are gladly accepted to support our educational commitment to the community.
Healthy Community seeks grants throughout the year to assist in supporting our education programs.
Our partners list is always expanding. Here are just a few of our community partners:
