Join the Hospitals Against Violence campaign

By AHA STAT Staff
June 7, 2017

All social and community ills seem to eventually find their way to the hospital. Certainly the results of violence do.

On June 9, Hospitals Against Violence Hope (#HAVhope) Friday will focus national attention on hospitals’ efforts to end violence with a digital media campaign – shared tweets, posted photos and other online efforts.

It’s part of the AHA’s effort to raise awareness about how hospitals and health systems are working to reduce violence in their communities and in their facilities. Our “Hospitals Against Violence” web page offers examples of innovative examples to tackle the problem, as well as tools and resources that can help support your role in reducing violence.

Please join our digital media campaign and demonstrate your commitment to addressing violence in whatever form it takes. Make no mistake. Reducing violence needs to be a top priority for every hospital and health system across America. Because no matter how one measures it, the cost of violence is simply too high to pay.
