OSCIL’s January 2021  Lunch and Learn Workshop

Topic: “Upward Health – Healthcare Comes Home”


 OSCIL will be holding a virtual Lunch and Learn Workshop via Zoom on Wednesday, January 27th starting a noon.


Kim Knighten, Outreach Manager of Upward Health will give a presentation on the services they have to offer to the community.  “Healthcare Comes Home - Upward Health is not your traditional doctor’s office. We do not ask our patients to come to us. We meet our patients when and where they need care – wherever they call home. We deliver primary care, behavioral health, and/or urgent care to patients across Rhode Island.


As part of OSCIL’s mission to provide outreach, education and opportunities for peer support, OSCIL offers these Lunch and Learn workshops highlighting various solutions that can increase access in your home and community.
