USA Chapter of Gold Humanism Honor Society to Focus on Compassion
Last year, over 40 schools and medical facilities across the country responded with their acts of solidarity on February 14. This year, USA's chapter will hold a "Focus on Compassion" week from February 13-17.
On February 14, medical students are asked to wear red to symbolize unity and to act as a reminder of the importance of compassion and love in health care. Other activities are also planned such as providing puzzles at hospital waiting rooms and distributing small bags of candy and treats to patients.
The senior medical students of the USA chapter of GHHS are Britni Bradshaw, Travis Harris, Antwan Hogue, Stephen Marbut, Cody Penrod, Melissa Reimer, Dianna Thomas, Ashley Weil, and Ryan Weldon.
