SHPYP Holiday Service Event

The Society of Health Policy Young Professionals invites you to a holiday community service event! Please join us at Arlington National Cemetery as we lay wreaths to remember our fallen heroes with Wreaths Across America. You can learn about their story here. All members, family, friends, and colleagues are encouraged to attend. 

WHO: All SHPYP members, family, friends, and colleagues
WHEN: Saturday, December 15 from 8:30 am - 12:00 pm
WHERE: Arlington National Cemetery (we will meet right inside the Ord & Weitzel gates, which are a 15 minute walk from the Rosslyn metro station. To get there, walk south along North Meade Street).


How do I get there?

Arlington National Cemetery is accessible via metro. We recommend using the Rosslyn metro stop (accessible on the blue and orange metro lines) and walking to the meet up location, which is a short 15 minute walk. No personally owned vehicles will be allowed on the grounds during the event.

What will happen once I arrive?

We will meet at 8:30 inside the Arlington National Cemetary Ord & Weitzel gates. To prevent any security delays, we recommend limiting large bags and anything else that typically results in security issues. Gates open to the public at 8:00 am.

Who should I contact with additional questions?

Please contact Society of Health Policy Young Professionals Community Service Director Ariana Olshan at
