Patient Solidarity Week

EVMS students spent time learning more about patients during the Gold Humanism Honor Society’s (GHHS) Solidarity Week.

It’s a week of recognition around the country for all GHHS chapters, medical schools, and patient care institutions to celebrate their dedication to ensuring compassionate, patient-centered care.

As part of the initiative, EVMS students participated in the Tell Me More campaign. They stopped by patient rooms at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital and asked them to answer questions about their background in order to get to know them better. 

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.
