First Aid and Wellness Center on Polish Hill


Contributed by Leah Wolfe

The Pittsburgh Medical Project is an endeavor of street medics and alternative health clinicians from all over the nation, the Eastern Seeds of Peace Collective, and Lentil Soup, a mental health advocacy organization. We have come together to help anyone who is injured or becomes ill during the G20 summits. Those who are exercising their right to free speech and raising their voice against the financial politics of the G20 often experience protest-related injuries and weather-related illnesses.

The Pittsburgh Medical Project will be dispatching street medics and staffing a first aid and wellness center September 20-28. The Center’s hours will be from 8 AM to 9 PM. Services will include first aid, herbal supplements, massage therapy, acupuncture, counselors, and other therapies. Donations are appreciated but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. People who live in the neighborhood are welcome to visit us at 3028 Brereton Ave. for treatment regardless of involvement in the G20 protests. If you are a practitioner and would like to volunteer, send an email to

As an aside, Our Fearless Leader has observed that it is nice to see the Emma Kaufman building returning to its original use. Thanks you, Ms. Wolfe.
