Solidarity Week- February 15-19, 2016

In 2016,  we encouraged chapters and other patient care facilities to celebrate a week of Solidarity.   We had a record number of participating sites- almost 100!  Many of the sites participated in our extremely successful “Tell Me More” program. See more photos from Solidarity Day 2016


How did Solidarity Week start?

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.  Momentum gathered particularly after the Senate passed a resolution in 2013 and 2014 to officially recognize Solidarity Day on the national calendar, and it is now typically celebrated on or around Valentine’s Day.  In 2016, many chapters celebrated a week of events instead of just one day.
