Better than Normal:
A Broadcast Highlighting Grit, Grace, and Gratitude
in the Face of COVID-19

Saturday, January 30, 2021 | 7:00-7:30 p.m.

Hartford Hospital logo 2020

Better than Normal, produced by Hartford HealthCare, will be broadcast on Fox 61, NBC CT, WFSB, & WTNH on January 30, 2021. In place of Hartford Hospital's Black & Red, this 30 minute broadcast will feature stories of how the pandemic has impacted our community, our hospital, and our health system. It will recognize the continuing dedication, excellence and heroism of our staff on the front lines. It will also raise much-needed funds to help Hartford Hospital and Hartford HealthCare address the glaring racial and ethnic disparities in health status and outcomes that have come to light even more in the pandemic.
