HWRT Program to hold first annual Community Day event

Kayla Ayers Sep 7, 2022

The Healthcare Workforce Resiliency Training (HWRT) Program will hold its first annual Community Day event Wednesday, Sept. 14, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Waynesburg University's Stover Campus Center on its main campus.

We are excited to be giving back to those who serve such a vital role in the community.”

Charles Stoddard

This event is open to the public and offered at no cost to healthcare workers, first responders and law enforcement professionals. Included will be resiliency topics shared by speakers with experience in drug and alcohol recovery, criminal justice and family resilience, as well as wellness activities focused on improving resilience for working professionals in the field.

“We are excited to be giving back to those who serve such a vital role in the community,” said Charles Stoddard, grant program manager and training coordinator. “First responders, medical professionals, law enforcement and many others have kept us safe and healthy despite the difficulty and challenge of doing so. This community day represents the beginning of an initiative that we hope to grow into quarterly and annual touch points that serve and support those who are doing so much for us.”

Through the community day events, the HWRT Program hopes Waynesburg University will serve as a resource hub to not only build a sense of community for healthcare and law enforcement professionals but also offer practical and valuable strategies to manage the challenges of the field and promote resiliency.
