A look back at 2018:

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.
