We encourage our volunteers and supporters to reach out to the media about their experiences with HVO, and our sponsors will often share the successes of their members who give of their time and talents at HVO sites. The result is a wonderful array of articles from local papers, online news sources, medical journals, universities and associations. Here is just a small sample of HVO in the media:
