Wear Orange Day June 5

Dear Docs,

June 5 is national Wear Orange Day. So, it is less than a week away.

This year with the corona virus there may be less in person interaction, but dust off your orange for our day.

Hadiya Pendleton’s memory is a focus- orange was her favorite color and she was shot as a bystander in  2013 after marching in then President Obama’s inaugural parade. Then there are all the others who have been shot and killed or injured to honor. So we doctors persist – we persist knowing that each time that guns are used to harm someone we have lost something precious and important and that this is OUR LANE and we as a people can and must do better.

WEAR ORANGE Docs!  And thanks for all you do for your patients!
