Honouring healthcare workers: Heroism & healing

Author: Zoe Langsdale

In August, Irish humanitarian, sportsman, and business Leader Alan KerinsĀ launchedĀ "Healthcare Heroes' Retreats" with support from the Kirby Group. These retreats offer frontline workers and their partners a free three-day retreat at The University of Notre Dame's Global Centre at Kylemore in Connemara, County Galway.

"For some time now, I have been trying to work out a way to reward the incredible effort of our doctors, our nurses and care home staff who all stepped forward as the rest of the world stepped back," says Kerins.

Partnering with Dr. Dominic O. Vachon, M.Div., Ph.D., Director of the Ruth M. Hillebrand Center for Compassionate Care in Medicine at the University of Notre Dame, the goal of these retreats is to provide a space to reflect on and accept the past year and a half.
