#HAVhope Friday: Day of Awareness

#HAVhope Friday:

National Day of Awareness 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. #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.

On June 5, the fourth annual Hospitals Against Violence Hope (#HAVhope) Friday will focus national attention on ending all forms of violence with a digital media campaign – shared tweets, posted photos and other online efforts. We encourage participation in the following ways:
