Join us on March 18 and beyond to put our health workers’ well-being first.

March 18, the anniversary of the passage of the Dr. Lorna Breen Health Care Provider Protection Act, is now officially recognized as Health Workforce Well-Being Day of Awareness, acknowledging the widespread health worker burnout in the U.S. and the need for solutions.

We are proud of the tremendous progress we’ve made

through creating meaningful connections, accelerating solutions and advancing critical policies for health workers.

1

Through our ALL IN Coalition, Ambassador Program and Medical Student Coalition,

we bring organizations and individuals together to harness our collective strength and make a lasting impact for our healthcare workforce.

2

With our ALL IN: Caring for Caregivers Program and Wellbeing First Champions Challenge,

we guide healthcare executives to effectively lead and create better workplace environments for their health workers.

3

We are at the forefront of advocating for federal, state and local policy solutions

that support the implementation of evidence-informed strategies to improve health workers’ mental health and professional well-being and how our healthcare system operates.

But there is more work to be done – and we’re only getting started.

Now is the time to act to support our nation’s health workers.

“As a healthcare worker deeply committed to the well-being of my colleagues, I am honored to serve as an Ambassador for the Dr. Lorna Breen Heroes’ Foundation. The Ambassador Program marks a significant milestone in our ongoing journey to nurture a culture of support and resilience among health workers, bringing together a group of highly involved individuals dedicated to these efforts who would otherwise be siloed in their work. Together, we will work towards a future where every health worker’s mental and emotional health is prioritized, focusing on systems change to ensure they have the strength to care for themselves while caring for others.”
