The OTLA Safety Leadership Awards were established four years ago to honour individuals and organizations that have made contributions toward enhancing safety in Ontario.
The P.A.R.T.Y. program at Windsor Regional Hospital has a mission to keep young people out of the hospital. PA.R.T.Y stands for Preventing Alcohol and Risk-related Trauma in Youths, which means the program focuses on adolescents making good choices that will prevent injuries.
In 1986, the program was started with the help of a registered emergency room nurse. Since then, the program has been delivered to over one million adolescents across Canada, includes over 100 sites worldwide and has expanded internationally into Australia, Brazil, Japan, Germany and the U.S.
The work of the P.A.R.T.Y. program is one that Greg Monforton greatly respects. The program celebrated its 20th anniversary operating out of Ouellette last year.
Congratulations to the entire team at the P.A.R.T.Y. program on this amazing achievement!
