If you find yourself at the new women's health kiosk in the waiting room of the Allegheny County Jail in Pennsylvania, there’s a kiosk in place to offer health information if you need it. Wellness can be anywhere, even if you are incarcerated. BD
A state commission and a Pittsburgh foundation, seeking to reach women often under-served by health systems, has launched a touch-screen service at the Allegheny County Jail, which they called a critical tool for women in need of health-related advice. The Pennsylvania Commission for Women and the Highmark Foundation this week unveiled the Women's Wellness Guide Kiosk in the jail's waiting room, where they hope to reach many who either don't know that they need to see a physician or lack information on health care that is available to them.
