Why are we hosting this event?

HRSA is proud to engage in activities for Healthcare Risk Management (HRM) Week to build awareness and highlight the contributions of HRSA award recipients as they ensure health center patients receive safe and trusted health care. Held annually on June 19 - 23, HRM is a week-long campaign founded by the American Society for Health Care Risk Management. Risk managers prevent harm, identify, and mitigate risk and promote safe and high-quality healthcare for patients, families, and employees. These professionals have a diverse set of responsibilities including but not limited to leadership, analysis, event and incident management, education, and claims management within health centers.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for the best photographs that capture your risk managers and patient safety teams. Submissions may include a variety of activities and settings, headshots are permissible.
