A Word of Thanks on National Doctors’ Day
As COVID-19 has reshaped the world around us in so many ways, the essential role that one group of people play in our communities has grown more important each and every day — doctors.
Bound by an oath to treat the ill to the best of their ability, doctors across the globe are as committed as ever to helping our society combat this pandemic by putting the needs of others above their own. And that’s no different right here in our backyard. The University of Mississippi provides a culture of care that is built around some of the brightest and most compassionate doctors available offering the best possible care for members of our community.
From everyone at University Health Services and the entire campus community, we wish to thank Dr. Jean Gispen, Dr. Susan Gunn, Dr. John Black, Dr. Marshall Crowther, Dr. Hubert Spears and Dr. Travis Yates for their contributions to our society and our community. Your dedication and service help make this university so very special and, for that, we thank you.
If you get the chance, please thank these heroes. As our situation changes continually, know that their dedication to you is unwavering.
Alex Langhart, Director of University Health Services
