Christoria Hughes, Cafeteria Worker, UPMC Presbyterian

Pittsburgh used to be the kind of place where you could get ahead if you worked hard. I can see the way it used to be under all the boarded up houses in run-down neighborhoods. We’re all working so hard to just get by that we can’t get ahead. I want our kids to do better. I want the people I work with to do better.

I want Pittsburgh to do better. To make that happen, UPMC is going to have to do better by all of us.
