Frist Launches New Website for Hope through Healing Hands
Nashville, Tenn. - Former U.S. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, M.D. has launched a new website for the nonprofit organization, Hope through Healing Hands: www.hopethroughhealinghands.org . Hope through Healing Hands is a 501(c)3 that promotes improved quality of life for communities around the world using health as a currency for peace. The new website showcases their latest work in partnership, global health scholars, and funding.
Dr. Frist stated, "I'm proud to announce the launch of Hope through Healing Hands' new website. We hope that this website will be a ‘home base' for those interested in global and domestic health issues."
Executive Director Jenny Eaton Dyer, Ph.D. commented, "This new website uniquely offers simple ways everyone can make a difference in the lives of ‘the bottom billion' in the world. We hope it encourages people to move beyond awareness to action."
The new website allows for daily active engagement with updates on important issues like clean water, child survival, extreme poverty, and HIV/AIDS in the latest news. The new blog includes writings from various contributors, including Senator Frist, sponsored fellows, and others from their perspectives around the world.
Hope through Healing Hands has a strong list of "Take Action" steps to participate, beyond simply joining as a member. Interested individuals can choose from advocacy, education, volunteerism, community organizing, philanthropy, or involvement with other recommended nonprofit organizations.
Given Senator Frist's expertise and experience in health, at home and abroad, this website is a public face to his continued commitment to promote awareness about global disease and extreme poverty on behalf of the world's poorest.
