Thank you for attending, volunteering and supporting Mission of Mercy Pittsburgh. While we were hopeful that we would still be able to have the 2020 event, after consulting with the leaders at the Pennsylvania Department of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Pennsylvania Dental Association—as well as the infectious disease specialists at UPMC —we have made the very difficult decision to postpone the 2020 event due to the COVID-19 public health crisis. The safety of our patients, volunteers and staff is paramount.
We are proud of the outstanding work we’ve done over the past three years to bring vital dental care to those who need and deserve it most. Given the parallel economic crisis we’re also in the midst of, we know that the work of our mission will be needed even more than ever going forward. Please be assured we are working diligently on establishing dates for the 2021 event. Check back here or follow us on Facebook for updates.
