About Us

Our story:

We started the Pittsburgh Health Brigade because we saw the need for a comprehensive health care provider resource created by members of the community.

Our values:

We value health care that is accessible, affirming, respectful, open-minded and seeker-centered.

Our desires:

We envision a world in which all people can access the health care that they need, deserve and want.

Our goals:

The Pittsburgh Health Brigade aims to:

  1. learn together about what good health care can and must look like
  2. treat the health care experiencer as the expert in their care and needs
  3. create a community referral network of health care services for the Greater Pittsburgh area by way of collecting and sharing seekers’ health care experiences
  4. center the needs of marginalized people, who have a harder time getting the health care that they need, deserve and want

and our lovely business cards:

A huge and healthy thank you to Alisa at Third Termite Press for the beauty and generosity of these promotional materials.

    I retired January, 2017. This anonymous letter is dated in January, 2018. Prior to my retirement, I was absent from the office for several months.

    Hi, PHB! I love what you do. Do you all know there are a now bunch of click-bait ads on your site? Many of them offering miracle cures or other financial scams for elder and disabled people? Did you all intend to have these kind of ads on here? They seem pretty counter to your mission.

      Thanks for reaching out, Corvus. We’re all-volunteer, have no budget, so we do a free version of WordPress, which has occasional ads on it. Food for thought, though.
