Medical residents host Doctors' Day show-and-tell with preschool students

In celebration of the national observance of Doctors’ Day, two St. Vincent Charity medical residents visited the Bingham Early Learning Center. Dr. Randol Kennedy and Dr. Emre Bucak did show-and-tell and dress-up with the preschool children. They also spoke to the kids about what how doctors help keep people healthy and why going to the doctor shouldn’t be scary – even if shots are involved. 

“I hope we inspired some future physicians today. Or at least made their next trip to the doctor a little less scary,” said Dr. Kennedy of the experience.

Led by St. Vincent Charity’s community outreach department, the Doctors’ Day activity is one of many activities St. Vincent Charity does in the Central neighborhood of Cleveland. St. Vincent is active in the Central community, doing health screenings at many housing facilities in the neighborhood, providing diabetes education and serving as an active partner with elementary schools in the neighborhood.

“The kids were so excited to have visitors and meet the doctors,” said Anita Sabolik, director of Bingham Early Learning Center. “We try to expand their horizons and of hands-on learning and interaction with the doctors was a wonderful experience for them.” 

St. Vincent Charity Medical Center also honors Doctors' Day with an internal celebration thanking all of it's physicians and naming the annual Physician of the Year

"We are blessed with outstanding physicians and its an honor to work beside them and to thank them every year on Doctors' Day," said Dr. David Perse, president and CEO, St. Vincent Charity Medical Center. "What makes St. Vincent Charity a special place is that we extend our celebration of physicians by serving the surrounding community and we live our mission outside the walls of the medical center."  

Doctors’ Day is observed annually on March 30.
