Golden Glimmers

Golden Glimmers are a way for GHHS members to express themselves, and at the same time stay connected with their GHHS peers! Staff will periodically request themed submissions in the form of art, writing, photos and more. We will share a selection of submissions on our website and social media pages.

Golden Glimmer Theme #1 was advice for new medical students in the form of a haiku. Read the wonderful haiku poems here.

Golden Glimmer Theme #2 was submissions of photos that elicit feelings of joy, resilience, or passion. View the gallery here. 

Golden Glimmer Theme #3 share photos that made our members SHINE in the summer of 2019. View the gallery here.

Golden Glimmer Theme #4 was a call to restore joy in medicine! Members and friends of GHHS submitted Haiku to share how they were nurturing their own wellness, caring for themselves and their colleagues, celebrating moments of joy, or simply taking time to breathe! View the gallery here.

Golden Glimmer Theme #5 was creative expressions during COVID-19. GHHS members and friends submitted photos, art, haiku, or other forms of creative expression and took action during the pandemic. View their stories and submissions here.
