Thank You from the Program for Health Care to Underserved Populations (PHCUP)

The Program for Health Care to Underserved Populations sends an enormous THANK YOU to all of the volunteer students who helped the Health Outreach and Education Project and SALUD Medical Student Coordinators during the students' Annual Live and Silent Auction to Benefit the PHCUP that was held on February 1st. The students broke all previous records and raised $7,900 for the PHCUP!

We also extend a huge THANKS to Pitt Nrityamala, for their record-breaking success of Dhirana 2014 The National, Intercollegiate Classical Indian Dance Competition, held on February 25th at Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall. This is the 2nd year that the PHCUP and its Birmingham Free Clinic has been the beneficiary of this event. This year, Dhirana raised an amazing $10,000 for our work in the community!

We express our sincerest gratitude to all of the many students whose hard work, compassion and energy is helping to do so much to support patient care to the uninsured and underinsured in Pittsburgh through the PHCUP!
