Celebrate National Occupational Health Providers’ Recognition in April
Every year, AOHP dedicates April to recognize the important contributions of occupational health professionals nationally and internationally. Not only do occupational health professionals take responsibility for employee care, but they have a responsibility to advocate for organizational policies that increase understanding of occupational hazards, and for new, safer technologies. AOHP raises awareness of these essential contributions each spring.
Our world has changed, and a new priority in our evolving role as occupational health professionals includes managing this change for the benefit of all healthcare personnel and the patients they serve. In these unprecedented times, we recognize the burden of this heightened level of responsibility for your work.
As we embark on our third year of occupational health under the complexities of COVID-19, AOHP is proud to celebrate the accomplishments of members like you! AOHP members should have received a card from us to thank for your unwavering commitment to the health, safety, and well-being of healthcare personnel, and for the value of your contributions to the ongoing advancement of occupational health practice. We thank you for all the hard work you do!
As you continue to do what you do best - take care of others - know that AOHP cares about you. Please take some time for yourself each day. Proper self-care means we don't just survive; we thrive!
Thank you for making a difference in so many lives!
