Third Annual Hospitals Against Violence Friday Set for June 7

It is a national day of awareness that unites 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 third annual Hospitals Against Violence Hope (#HAVhope) Friday is set for June 7, and the American Hospital Association expects hospitals and health systems to participate in the digital media campaign that aims to focus national attention on ending all forms of violence.

It is a national day of awareness that unites 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 association says #HAVhope "will provide an important visual demonstration that the health care community stands together and with others in the community to combat violence in our workplaces and communities."

AHA is encouraging participants to download its digital toolkit for ideas to create awareness, to post #HAVhope photos on social media and highlight the work and commitment to combat violence in their community or workplace, and to download a #HAVhope sign.
