UNC Hospitals Beacon Child and Family Program is celebrating its 8th annual Carolina Men Care campaign from 10 a.m. to 1p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 15th, in the UNC Children's Hospital lobby. The campaign encourages all men from UNC Health Care to sign a pledge to stand up and speak out against family violence. We welcome everyone to come out in support of this campaign in which men say that abuse is wrong and there are other ways of acting. We hope you will spread the word about this initiative to others in your department or division, as well as communities and families.
