To help celebrate and recognize National Minority Health Month, we are bringing you a special month-long podcast series with our Strategic Alliance Partner, UPMC Health Plan.

Welcome to our second episode, in which we learn all about Freedom House 2.0 and the Pathways to Work Program from its very own Dan LaVallee, senior director, Social Impact, UPMC Health Plan, and Markisha Jones, a Pathways to Work/Freedom House 2.0 graduate. These programs provide holistic support via social, emotional, and financial initiatives that enable program participants to overcome barriers to employment and find jobs within their communities. At their core, they carry on the legacy of the original Freedom House program, which was formed to bring urgently needed emergency medical services to a racially divided Pittsburgh in the 1960s, and of Dr Peter Safar, known as the “father of CPR,” who spearheaded the program’s EMS training and provided invaluable guidance with the program’s founding.
