Signature Initiatives

It takes a community effort to build a lifetime of good health for everyone. That’s why Signature Initiatives, a UPMC Health Plan initiative, supports public programs that help families and individuals achieve a healthy, well-rounded lifestyle.

This initiative provides the community with educational resources to develop healthy lifestyle habits, targeted interventions that address social determinants of health and improve outcomes for the most vulnerable and underserved populations, and access to our region's most treasured cultural assets.


Let's Move Pittsburgh's goal is to make Pittsburgh one of the nation’s healthiest cities for families, and it's working toward this goal by engaging in grassroots community activities and generating awareness of core healthy behaviors.
