The first Americans Sunday joined a nightly, worldwide movement that began in Europe to show support and gratitude to the nurses, physicians and other health care workers caring for patients during the COVID-19 pandemic. Participants pause at 8 p.m. local time for a moment of appreciation, some even going to a balcony or window to clap for those who risk their lives to fight this battle. AHA is amplifying the movement, #Solidarityat8, on all its social handles, including @ahahospitals.
