Creating awareness about the pervasiveness of domestic violence is the goal of a free performance to be held next week at UPMC Shadyside. “At the Round Table: Lifting the Veil of Secrecy on Domestic Violence” examines the complicated and devastating effects of domestic violence and is being presented during Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
The performance will take place at 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 29, in the Herberman Conference Center, UPMC Cancer Pavilion at UPMC Shadyside. 
UPMC Shadyside, the Women’s Center & Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh, and the St. James AME Drama Ministry invite physicians, clinical and nonclinical health care workers, and the general public to attend. It is not necessary to pre-register for this event. 
Refreshments will be served beginning at 5:45 p.m., and parking will be available in the Centre Avenue parking garage. For more information, call UPMC Shadyside Human Resources at 412-623-6683.
