Each year on March 30, we celebrate National Doctors’ Day and honor the healthcare professionals in our lives. This year, as our caregivers continue to face the challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, honoring the selflessness and dedication of our doctors is more important, and more meaningful, than ever before.   

Our physicians are going above and beyond. They are not just healing bodies, but healing hearts, inspiring hope, and providing a much-needed hand to hold for the sick and suffering. 

As our doctors continue to give everything they have during this time of struggle in our community and our country, it’s now our turn to give back to them in honor of Doctors’ Day 2021 in the form of a gift to Saint Agnes Foundation for the Resident Research Fund. Ascension Saint Agnes Director of GME Research, Steven Cunningham, MD, says the impact that donors make when they support research is tremendous.

“We have so much opportunity, but you can’t do research without resources,” he said. “Donor support helps us to conduct and publish important clinical findings. It has helped us do research that we have presented at national meetings, allowing us not only to improve patient care, but also to share our findings with colleagues around the nation, and to show our community and beyond the great work happening here at Ascension Saint Agnes. We are very thankful for every donation, since every single one helps make this important work possible.”

Beyond financial support, your stories can inspire others, too. Please take a moment to share your experiences with the doctors and caregivers at Ascension Saint Agnes (on the insert card). We will convey your messages directly to them, so they can see how their energy and efforts really do make a difference. 

Thank you for recognizing the incredible contributions our doctors make in our lives and in our communities. Deepfelt concern for the well-being of you, your family, and your neighbors is the reason why our physicians and other providers do what they do. And it’s only you who can, with your contribution, make this Doctors’ Day the most powerful and meaningful yet.

Please make your gift by March 25, 2021 to be included in the celebrations!
