Adagio is a wonderful organization. It is at the forefront of providing affordable care for all of women's health needs. It serves over 75,000 women in 23 counties of Western PA. It has a caring and dedicated staff. In the new world of heath care Adagio is well positioned to offer exceptional delivery of services at a much lower cost than traditional healthcare facilities. It deserves our support and recognition for the work that they do. I am proud to be a board member.

Adagio is an agency that goes beyond the usual health care to providing support and education. Although the emphasis is women, the services reach families as well as individuals and provide options for taking personal responsibility. Nutrition Services by credentialed professionals are a strength that is not emphasized in other health care programs. Supporting Adagio is supporting prevention!

Would you volunteer for this group again?

As a family physician, I see people every day who our health care system leaves behind, unable to afford medications, diagnostic tests, and doctor visits. Adagio Health exists to help people, including those without other resources, to meet their family planning and cancer screening and diagnosis needs. Add to that the work Adagio Health does in pregnancy prevention, and community and nutrition education, and you'll see that this is one terrific organization! As a board member, I am proud to play a small role in Adagio Health's success. You can play a role, too. Your donation means that a woman with an abnormal mammogram and a lot of fear and anxiety will get the care she needs. Thanks for your help!

I am proud to be associated with Adagio Health. Our services help care for, educate, nourish and house people in need throughout western PA. In our medical offices, quality comprehensive women's health care is delivered with respect and is provided to all women regardless of insurance status. Our nutrition services include the WIC (Women, Infants and Children) supplemental nutrition program and Power Up, a nutrition education program provided at no cost to local schools. Our Community Education Department houses the Center for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention which helps young people live healthy lives and avoid risky behaviors.

many ways. I am constantly amazed at the work done in our field offices - the staff is AWESOME!

have others recognize the importance of funding for preventive health care and increase funding for the work that we do.
