LACONIA, NH – LRGHealthcare joins the American Hospital Association (AHA) today to take a stand against violence in our communities with the #HAVhope campaign. #HAVhope Friday, a national day of awareness, will focus attention on ending all forms of violence with a digital media campaign through shared tweets, Facebook posts, photos, and other online efforts.
Violence is one of the nation’s major public health and safety issues, both in our communities and workplaces. Through the #HAVhope National Day of Awareness, the AHA unites hospitals, health systems, nurses, doctors and other professionals from across the country, as well as the local and national organizations they work with, to combat violence.
All #HAVhope supporters were asked to share a photo on June 9 of them holding hands with their colleagues or community partners to show how they are committed to combatting violence. LRGHealthcare called upon the leadership, staff, and providers of both the Lakes Region General Hospital and Franklin Regional Hospital campuses as well as the Laconia and Franklin police and fire departments to participate and the response was overwhelming.
The photos will be shared across social media through LRGHealthcare and the AHA today. For more information about #HAVhope Friday and the Hospitals Against Violence Initiative, visit www.aha.org/PreventViolence
