Lincoln Highway Talk: "Freedom House Ambulance Service: A Lincoln Highway Pioneer" by Andrew Blenko
Saturday April 6, 1:00pm
Imagine being sick or injured and needing medical assistance, but help never arrives because of your zip code. While many think this kind of treatment only happened in the South in the mid-twentieth century, this was also the fate of Pittsburghers in predominantly Black neighborhoods.
Discover how African Americans in the Hill District, a neighborhood just off the Lincoln Highway, founded a mobile emergency medical service to address the needs of residents in their communities. Join Andrew as he presents the beginnings and innovations of the Freedom House Ambulance, America's first emergency medical service, and how their example sparked a national movement to provide the country with skilled medical assistance on the move.
Cost: $5 admission per person. No reservation required.
Coffee & cookies will be provided for a suggested donation of $1.
