In this NEXTpittsburgh Sponsor Spotlight, Boaz Frankel goes to the East End to visit the UPMC Health Plan Neighborhood Center. Thanks to a tour led by Program Manager Thomas Washington, Jr., Boaz gets a glimpse of the wide array of free health and community services provided at this center, from drop-in childcare to senior wellness classes, and a citizenship class offered by Literacy Pittsburgh. The center also features a food pantry, workforce development programs and other social services. For more info, visit the UPMC health Plan Neighborhood Center website
