Join the Heinz History Center for “The History and Legacy of the Freedom House,” a free webinar for teachers and students on Thursday, Feb. 17. This virtual program will explore the story of the Freedom House Ambulance Service, a trailblazing agency that trained African American men and women as paramedics to deliver lifesaving medical care to the Hill District, a predominantly Black neighborhood in Pittsburgh. Learn more about how Freedom House’s work shaped a generation of emergency service professionals and set the standards for modern emergency medicine.
There are two webinars scheduled for this free, virtual program. One for grades 3–7 at 10 a.m. and one for grades 8–12 at 1 p.m. on Feb. 17.
This program is free to attend. Please register in advance.
