When asked the question, why did you get into a career in healthcare? A common response from our members is: “because we’re passionate about helping people and making a difference in the lives of our patients, their families and the communities we serve”. The AHRA family has long been known to be caring, compassionate, giving and supportive. It’s part of what makes this organization special.

As the New Year begins, you may be considering plans for giving and supporting the organizations, causes, or charities that you believe in. Perhaps many of the headlines highlighting the global challenges we face, such as the devastating Australian wildfires, or earthquakes in an already-vulnerable Puerto Rico, are affecting the way you’re thinking about contributing this year.

We think it’s worth taking a moment to remind you that rather than feeling helpless or hopeless at times like these, the very attributes of caring, compassion, and generosity that are intrinsic to our members are invaluable when it comes to lifting up those in need. If, and however, you choose to put your strengths, skills, or donations to use, whether nearby or far away, we salute you for your contributions.

Various, global relief efforts are underway for multiple causes. Visit links below to get involved, or simply learn more.
