GHHS Solidarity Week


February 10th, 2020 - February 14th, 2020

12:00 AM - 12:00 AM

The national Gold Humanism Honor Society office established National Solidarity Day for Compassionate Care in 2011 to highlight the nation-wide movement promoting provider-patient relationships based on caring, personalization, and mutual respect. Since 2016, many GHHS chapters around the country celebrated a week of events instead of just one day.

This year, the 2020 JABSOM GHHS chapter would like to invite you to our own slate of Solidarity Week events that will span from February 10th to 14th, 2020. This is a unifying email where you will find the schedule for the whole week but you will also receive specific emails regarding each event with more specific information.
