This is a special episode created as a raffle prize for the pediatric residents at UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh. Every November the residents put together a "No Shave November" fundraising drive to raise money for the Free Care Fund at UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh. The Free Care Fund at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh provides care to every child in our community, regardless of their family’s ability to pay.

This year we put an episode of PHM from Pittsburgh as a raffle prize for the residents to help raise money for this great cause. We are privileged to welcome Dr. Andrew Georgeson onto the podcast as the winner of the raffle. Dr. Georgeson is a third year pediatrics resident at UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh.
