DoctorsDay-logo-01For the second year, the North Carolina Medical Society (NCMS) is spearheading the NC Doctors’ Day campaign built to put a spotlight on our state’s great doctors and their grateful patients. This homegrown celebration honoring physicians also is designed to remind you that what you do matters, and your patients are appreciative.
Our inaugural NC Doctors’ Day last year was a huge success, with over 140 doctors from across the state nominated for the NC Doctor of the Year Award. The Award is presented to the physician who garners the most online votes by March 30, and comes with a $5,000 check to be used to further a professional cause or project to help your community.
The nomination phase begins on Monday, Feb. 1. Encourage your staff and patients to nominate doctors in your practice – or nominate a colleague yourself. Visit the website at Nominations close on March 4.
On March 18, the 10 finalists for NC Doctor of the Year will be posted on the website and online voting will begin and continue through March 27. On March 30, the winner will be announced and presented with their prize. Last year’s winner was Gloria Graham, MD, a dermatologist in Morehead City who has been practicing for over 50 years.
