Health Alerts – The Health Alerts list service provides important health-related bulletins to men throughout the state. These bulletins are backed by 25 years of experience (through the Pitt Men’s Study medical staff) in working with a diverse group of MSM. Individuals interested in subscribing to the service can send an email to PMS@stophiv.pitt.edu with the word subscribe in the subject line. You will then receive a confirmation message to verify your email address. Members can unsubscribe at any time, and email addresses will be kept private and confidential.
