MCMURRAY – Rep. Natalie Mihalek (R-Washington/Allegheny) announced today that she will be hosting two virtual outreach events in the upcoming weeks.

The first is a self-defense class via Facebook live on Thursday, April 30, from 6-7 p.m. The event was originally scheduled for early May but was canceled due to the COVID-19 crisis.

“We were all really looking forward to this event,” said Mihalek. “During this time, we all have to get a little creative. I thought it would be fun to still host this event but do it a little differently. I hope residents will tune in to our Facebook live on my legislative Facebook page to learn some basic self-defense moves. It will be fun and informative for the whole family!”

Residents can watch and participate in the Facebook live event on Mihalek’s legislative Facebook page, Facebook.com/RepMihalek. The class will be taught by a certified instructor from C.S. Kim Karate studio.

Mihalek will also be hosting a telephone town hall meeting on Thursday, May 7, at 6:15 p.m. She will be joined by two guests, Dr. Krista Boyer, a licensed psychologist, who provides individual, group and family therapy to individuals across the lifespan in the Greater Pittsburgh Area,and Dr. Tim Campbell, a Bethel Park physician who routinely responds to national disasters as part of his role as a responder with a federal Disaster Medical Assistance Team. Together, they willdiscuss mental health issues and how to deal with them during the COVID-19 crisis.

“This telephone town hall meeting will be a great opportunity to discuss mental health and howto best cope with anxiety and stress during this crisis,” said Mihalek. “I invite residents to call in and listen or ask a question to our medical professionals.”

Residents of the 40th Legislative District should expect a telephone call shortly before 6:15 p.m. on the day of the call inviting them to participate. Those interested also can call in at 1-877-229-8493 and use ID code 119479. Web audio streaming is also available here.
