The City of Harrisburg, Peyton Walker Foundation, and UPMC are proudly partnering in support of Minutes Matter, a UPMC community initiative. The partnership’s goal is to provide Harrisburg and neighboring communities with lifesaving emergency education and information related to cardiac events, overdoses, uncontrolled bleeding, and mental health.

Minutes Matter officially launched in Harrisburg during a press conference on June 12, 2023, with Harrisburg’s mayor, Wanda R. D. Williams.

Minutes Matter in the Harrisburg Community

Have you ever learned how to apply a tourniquet to stop severe bleeding? Do you know how to give chest compressions? Would you know how to help someone experiencing a mental health crisis? UPMC experts will be onsite at community events and activities throughout central Pa. to help bring visibility to these life-saving interventions, talk about the importance of training, and give you opportunities to see how you could help save a life.
