Homepage of Pittwire Health

The University Office of Communications is expanding Pittwire with a new online newsletter, Pittwire Health, which began publication on Oct. 16.

Pittwire Health, according to @Pitt, will promote Pitt health research involving physical, mental, social and environmental well-being. The publication will primarily focus on drawing attention from news organizations, health professionals and others to the website.

“The University of Pittsburgh has long been a leader in life-saving and life-enhancing research, from the polio vaccine to transplantation to phage therapy,” said David Seldin, assistant vice chancellor for communications, according to @Pitt. “Pittwire Health will serve to highlight the University’s work — to the Pitt community, the public at large and the press — that will lead to the next great advancement.”

Former University spokesman Joe Miksch and Jolie Williams will curate the content for the newsletter. It will be free and include stories from the Schools of Health Sciences, engineering, sociology, psychology, environmental science and other academic units engaged in health research. 

It will be released every other Wednesday, with the next edition coming on Oct. 30.
