In honor of today’s second annual national day of awareness for “Hospitals Against Violence,” the DFW Hospital Council (DFWHC) Board of Directors stood for a photograph to display unity with hospitals across the U.S.
The campaign was the brainchild of the American Hospital Association (AHA) with a goal to focus national attention on ending all forms of violence through digital media to include tweets, photos and other online efforts.
“Hospitals Against Violence” is a day of awareness uniting hospitals, health systems, nurses, doctors and other professionals from across the country, as well the local and national organizations they work with, to combat violence through the use of digital media. The movement provides an important visual demonstration that the health care community stands together and with others to combat violence in our workplaces and communities.
“Today we welcome health providers, community organizations, clergy, law enforcement, clinics and other volunteer organizations to participate,” said W. Stephen Love, president/CEO of DFWHC.
