Amp Up! Support Group

Amp Up! is a monthly meeting of amputees, prosthetists, and other members of the Pittsburgh prosthetics community. We exist to offer support and information beyond the hospital setting for current and former patients in order to provide improved resources and community re-entry.

We strive to enhance the quality of life by promoting a healthier, happier well-being through a continuum of health care services.

Meetings are typically held on the third Tuesday of the month.
