Lights of Hope: A special vigil to honor individuals with addiction
This September, Novant Health UVA Health System will hold candlelight vigils to honor individuals with the disease of addiction. Those in attendance are invited to wrap white, flameless LED candles in one of four ribbons to represent the impact of addiction on their lives. The events are open to all Novant Health UVA Health System team members and their loved ones. Vigils are estimated to last approximately 30 minutes. Click here for details.
The brain diseases of addiction and mental illness are themes addressed in this year’s Novant Health Reads book, A Common Struggle by former congressman Patrick Kennedy. Our hope is that individuals and their loved ones can come together in this time, finding community, hope and support.
