Donated bench from the Emerging Leaders Program
Thursday, January 20, 2011

Taking your seat just got easier at the Loma Linda VA, thanks to staff project.  Our Emerging Leader Program is a way employees can develop leadership skills and participate in facility projects.  This year's Emerging Leaders used their newly honed skills to offer a seat to Veterans and others.

Enlisting the support of the Patient Centered Care Committee and Volunteer Service, they mapped out a plan to place benches around the grounds to provide a place to enjoy our beautiful grounds and the wildlife that calls our ponds home.  In addition, these benches provide resting area for those walking for exercise.  This especially supports the Veterans who are participating in our MOVE! Program, who are adopting a healthier life style.  Donors have already purchased four benches.

Take a walk on our grounds and rest comfortably thanks to our 2010 Emerging Leader Program and Alumni.
