Wal-Mart Grant

I just returned from a photo –op where a few of us accepted the “big check” of $25,000.00 from Wal-Mart for patient safety education and advocacy training. It’s a great day when a corporation recognizes the need for our work. Since the moment I learned that we received the grant my head has been spinning with ideas. It seems so many of the things we have wanted to do to make patient safety information accessible can start to unfold.

NY State Senator Kemp Hannon, the Chair of the NY State Senate Health Committee joined us for the photo. I was glad he came to see the additional support we are getting. I was glad he came to support our work too.

Leslie, Charles, Diane, Sandra, they all came to show support. It is a wonderful community we have built and are building around the sadness we have all once felt. It is a relief that we can put our knowledge and passion into something so constructive. I hope others will follow!
