Given the ongoing global concerns around coronavirus, we want to do our part to keep our entire community safe and to contribute to the management of this growing public health crisis. 
Due to the potential for exposure and U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations for social distancing, UPMC is cancelling large group events.
As a result, we are suspending Spirit of Women events and programs.
We apologize for any inconvenience and request your patience as we seek to make the best decisions possible to keep everyone in our community healthy and safe while also doing our part to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19. 
Our patients, guests, employees and communities can be reassured that UPMC facilities and staff are well-equipped to properly care for patients with contagious diseases, including COVID-19, without exposing other patients, staff, or visitors. For current information about COVID-19 and what UPMC is doing to prepare, please visit
All Spirit of Women events and activities questions should be directed to Tonya Welshans, Spirit of Women Coordinator, at 570-321-2921 or email
