A Time For Doctors To Be Recognized and Appreciated


In the height of the COVID 19 pandemic, the world collaborated to celebrate physicians and healthcare workers by naming them Heroes. Many doctors like, Physicians Working Together Founder, Dr. Kimberly F. Jackson went beyond the front-lines to news headlines to help educate the public on safety protocols. Like most viral news headlines, the topic has died down. With or without the recognition, physicians are saving lives everyday.

See Dr. Kimberly Jackson discuss COVID-19 safety on WTVM ABC9 in Columbus, GA during the pandemic.

“New healthcare developments during the pandemic forced healthcare workers to learn a lot of information in a short period of time and we’re still learning. PWT members are working together as mentors to strengthen the present and future of healthcare. We’re dedicated to sharing our experiences to prepare and educate the next generation of outstanding physicians.” Dr. Kimberly F. Jackson

Dr. Kimberly F. Jackson has been instrumental in highlighting the annual recognition of Doctors Day and extending the celebration from one day to a week (March 25 -31).
