Virtual Health Education Advisory Committee events

The Health Education Advisory Committee (HEAC) was created to help us better understand your needs. Events are held quarterly to talk with you about health care and health education topics. During the pandemic, UPMC for You has held virtual events for members.

 

Help your child adjust to change during COVID-19

Learn how you can support your child’s physical and emotional health during the COVID-19 pandemic. You’ll also hear how to:

  • Explain COVID-19 in an age-appropriate way.
  • Help your child express his or her feelings.
  • Fit schoolwork, physical activity, and rest into your routine.
  • Teach your child to practice social distancing and other healthy behaviors.
  • Use telehealth resources to get care from your home.

Where to go for the right care at the right time

Listen to a discussion with our guest host, former Pittsburgh Steeler Charlie Batch! You’ll learn about finding high-quality care when and where you need it. Knowing all your options can help you make the best choice based on your needs. You’ll learn:

  • What your nonemergency care options are and when to use them.
  • What qualifies as an emergency and when to go to the emergency room.

Call the Health Care Concierge team at 1-800-286-4242 (TTY: 711) if you are interested in more information about the HEAC events. Representatives are available Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Wednesday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
