Doctors' Day 2021
Doctors' Day 2021: Join Our Celebration
Doctors have always been heroes to those whose lives they change and save. This past year, they became heroes to us all.
On March 30 we celebrate Doctors’ Day, and we're honoring our physicians by sharing some of the stories of those who have adapted to continue healing, enhancing and saving lives amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
We invite you to read their stories below and learn how our donor community makes a real difference for all Scripps physicians. If you'd like to join us in our Doctors' Day celebration, please make a gift today to support the tremendous work of our doctors now and in the future.
Dr. Randolph Schaffer is the chief of staff at Scripps Green Hospital, where we launched the region’s first centralized organ recovery center. He and his team have continued to perform critical organ transplants for patients in need despite the numerous challenges brought on by COVID-19, and countless lives were saved because of their work.
Here's what Dr. Schaffer has to say about support from our donor community: "Philanthropy has been critical for the Scripps Center for Organ Transplantation. Our donors help advance research, education and patient support services - and ensure patients maintain access to care by supporting medication costs and transportation for appointments."
