The Power of A Awards recognize and celebrate the extraordinary contributions associations make to society
The Medical Society of Virginia (MSV) has been named a 2021 Power of A Gold Award Winner for its Clinician Well-Being Program, SafeHaven™.
SafeHaven™ was founded in 2020 after recognizing a greater need to provide physicians and PAs the support they need to stay well and prevent burnout. As of 2021, the SafeHaven™ protections have been extended through additional legislation to now include nurses and pharmacists; as well as medical, nursing, PA, and pharmacy students.
The Power of A Awards recognize and celebrate the extraordinary contributions associations make to society by enriching lives, creating a competitive workforce, preparing society for the future, driving innovation and making a better world.
“Congratulations for exemplifying the impact associations have on the industries and professions they represent, and on society at large,” said ASAE President & CEO Susan Robertson, CAE. “It’s always so incredibly satisfying to see associations going above and beyond their everyday mission to change the world. We’re very proud to spotlight this award-winning initiative.”
“This is a great honor for the MSV and our SafeHaven™ program,” said Melina Davis, CEO and EVP for the MSV. “SafeHaven™ so important in supporting the entire medical community, and it is very exciting that it will continue to get recognized and shared so widely.”
The Medical Society of Virginia looks forward to working with the ASAE throughout the coming months.
