PITTSBURGH (July 11, 2016) — Are you new to the area, had a change to your insurance or are just looking for a new doctor or health care facility?

Meet Dr. Right events are sponsored by Highmark and provide attendees with the opportunity to meet, mingle and make appointments with physicians from Allegheny Health Network and other community practices.
