Helping Survivors of Trauma

There are approximately 80,000 Holocaust survivors living in the US, many of whom continue to suffer the impact of physical and emotional trauma. Holy Name Medical Center is offering an important opportunity for healthcare professionals to cultivate a person-centered, trauma-informed approach to improve care of Holocaust and other trauma survivors. As compassionate medical providers, it is essential that we are aware and educated to avoid unintentional reinjury by instilling a sense of well-being and promoting healing in our patients.
